Whoever heard of a name like Mewkiss! Ugh! How can a "Mewkiss" be brave? Why couldn't my Jessica call me "fearless" or "Ratkiller"? And why do I have to share a tub with a barky puppy named Barkus?

Actually... its nice to have somebody to cuddle up to. My real problem is rats. Two scary rats in the storm cellar are plotting to attack Jessica! What's a kitten to do? How do I

Summary-The story is about a cat named Mewkiss and he had a problem it was that he was scared of rats. Spoiler alert: in the begging his mom was taking the cats to the upstairs and him and his sister were the only tow left and a rat attacked them and ate his sister .So he is trying to get over rats.

Setting-The story takes place at his owners house with a dog and they get moved around the house a lot. I think it is important to the story because his owners live there.

Character Trait-Mewkiss ca

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

One of my absolute favorite books growing up (but I'm partial to cats and kittens). A bit sad for such a young intended audience, but it includes some great themes for emotional development - friendship, overcoming obstacles, and saying goodbye. I still own the paperback from when I purchased it over 20 years ago. This is one that won't be leaving my bookcase anytime soon.. unless I'm reading it :3

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.
