Sinossi

From feline Hunter’s point of view, this is 12 lines and 3 photographs for each of the 20 years in a cat’s life. Take the journey from eager little guy to sophisticated kitty to wise cat. Appropriate for all ages.
“Maggie Bishop's Meow Means Me! Now! is a must read for cat lovers. Dictated by Hunter (the cat) to Maggie over the course of his 20 year life, it is a clever, yet poignant, celebration of the feline-human bond from Hunter's rhyming viewpoint.”

5.0 su 5 stelle Meow also means I love you. 20 giugno 2009

I thought this book was one of those horrid and mean books which depict cats in such a bad light. But no, "Meow Means Me! Now!: A Rhyming Feline Allegory" is a wonderful tribute to a family member who just happens to be feline. Be warned--it's also emotion-grabbing and tear-making!

The picture on the cover is what creates the confusion. It appears to be a cat meant to look ferocious. But look again: it's just an old, tired cat (and certainly not a flattering picture of an old family friend/member).

This book is the story of Hunter: how he came to the family (of two, newlyweds), how he survived two children, his relationship with Grandpa in both their old ages, and, finally, his demise. By the time I reached Hunter's leaving, I was attached to him and cried tears of loss. Having lived with my own dear kitty of 17 years and then losing her, I understand the author's need to document Hunter's life and wish I had done the same for my Marie. However, the reader can get ideas for keeping pictorial records of his/her own kitty friend for posterity.

"Meow Means Me! Now!" is a wonderful gift for a cat lover because it is a sweet tribute to a family member who gives joy and love (and sometimes mischief and misdeeds). Highly recommended.

5.0 su 5 stelle Hunter's Story -- A Neat Cat Saga That Touches the Child in Every Reader's Heart 21 novembre 2008
Di 'MaryLou Cheatham - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Maggie Bishop did not write Meow Means Me! Now! for children; however, I find it has great value for children of all ages. We are all children inside, and she wrote it for the cat-loving children we are.

First, the book can be read by a mother expecting a child. An expectant mother can gain pleasure reading to her unborn baby. (When I was pregnant, my daughter was in constant motion. If I read rhymed poetry aloud, she settled down. I believe she enjoyed the reading.)

Next, newborn babies love to look at black-and-white contrasting pictures. Authorities say that infants relate to this kind of pictures more than to color photographs. MEOW is full of delightful black-and-white photos. The rhymed verses are suitable to read to an infant.

Then some of the pages can be read each night for bedtime stories. In a gentle, loving way the book teaches about death. Children need to discuss this subject. (They are exposed to it in crass ways all too often on television!)

Those of us who are young at heart delight in the happiness and sadness of the rhyming feline allegory. I will treasure this book and keep it near the couch in my living room.

All you children, no matter how old you are, should buy several of these and give them for Christmas gifts. I recommend this book with love! Thanks to Maggie Bishop for sharing this poignant portion of her life in this clever coffee-table delight.

I had the great pleasure of meeting Mrs. Bishop in the Boone Mall on 11/21/2010. I spoke with her for a bit about my owner, "Cash," and how he's impacted my life, too. Talking to her about Cash, and her own cat, "Hunter," really impressed me. I was quite sad that I couldn't afford her book at the moment, as I am a poor college student, trying to graduate. She offered the book to me as a birthday present. She couldn't have known that my birthday is only about 2 weeks away, but at the same time, I was so grateful for something that I knew would be a great book.

I picked it out of the bag as soon as I got home, and wasn't disappointed. Hunter's rhymes and stories about his life with his humans were so touching. They reminded me of my relationship with my other cats. His attempts to teach his humans the truth of life, and how wonderful it can all be were written wonderfully, and I had to choke back tears at the ending. It's a shame that it had to end that way, but the story was so touching, and a great read for any and all animal lovers, not just for cat people!

Thank you so much for sharing, Mrs. Bishop. I'll treasure this book always, and I can't wait to read it to Cash!

5.0 su 5 stelle This has become one of my granddaughter's favorite bedtime stories 18 marzo 2013

I assumed this was a book for adults, most especially cat lovers. But my granddaughter Gabi asks me to read it to her most nights at bedtime when she stays with me. I'm not sure if it's the rhyming prose or the many pictures but she loves the book which tells the story of Hunter, Maggie Bishop's cat who lived to the ripe old age of 20. It's sweet and charming and a real tribute to a beloved companion. I'm thinking maybe Gabi needs a cat...
