This is the tale of Chester, the lazy calico cat, who loses his meow and searches for it everywhere. Will he get it back?
I found the rhyming verse to be labored and was annoyed by the lack of punctuation at the ends of lines. The illustrations by Helen H. Wu are perhaps a bit too realistic and do not engender sympathy for this cat. Chester is not a cute cat, and he appears to be hissing, rather than crying out. On the plus side, there is a lesson to be learned, and there are some interesting calico cat facts at the end of the book.
One for true cat lovers only.
I received this book in return for an honest review.
