MEOW is a 40-page children’s picture book. Kitty, the beautiful Seal Point Ragdoll cat featured on the cover, was a stray that was abandoned in the snow. My family took her in and she became a beloved friend.
For centuries, people everywhere, from Tibet to Oman to Scotland to the United States, have been fascinated with cats and their intriguing personalities. In this collection, New York Times best-selling author Jane Yolen has gathered and adapted cat stories, sayings, and nursery rhymes from around the world.
