This book really is a "Don't Judge a Book by it's Cover" Type. I'm not an animal lover, but if I didn't have a personal goal to read all the books in my bookshelf, I most likely would not have bothered reading this at all. Surprisingly I enjoyed it. It was entertaining, and hilarious. Leaves you feeling happy about life. Wouldn't be surprised if people would end up getting a dog or cat after reading this. It's absolutely delightful. A little short for my taste and was a bit difficult for me to r ...more

Mewkiss is a small kitten looking for her special person. She is horribly afraid of rats because her sister got killed by one when they were just kittens. She finds her special person. They're eyes met, "this is it," Thought the kitten. "Now I'm going to get a strong name, like fierce, or ratkiller, or hunter." But her special person ends up naming him Mewkiss. He says " when I say it slowly, it sounds like mew, and kiss put together. But when I say it fast, it sounds like mucus. How totally dis ...more

Another cute cat/dog story from Bill Wallace! He certainly knows his animal behavior. I felt a little sorry for the rats, though. I've got to read the rest of Bill Wallace's animal stories. Recommended for animal lovers!

This was one of my favorite books as a child. I read it so much it started to fall apart, and I'm very careful with my books. I have books that are ten year old and could be placed back on the book store's shelves.
This book inspired me to read all his books and I'm glad I did. This book is good but not my favorite. I suggest you start with this book and then read the rest.
this is one of the most adorable stories ive ever read as a child! the innocence of it reached deep into my heart!
I still read this book and I am 26, the first time I read it I was in the fourth grade, it's a comfort book for me.
I loved the strong and brave cat, Allergies was funny, and the sweet dog was just enough to get me hooked.
