Good morning my dears:

A while back, the kind folks at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast did a Q & A with your truly about all things Curious and Cat-like: Behold! These are kind (and smart) folks, and their blog is definitely worth a look-see.

Cat Haiku 2 at Kepler’s Books

Here’s Andy and Michael (with Betsy!) performing Cat Haiku 2 at Kepler’s Books in Palo Alto on June 28, 2009.

The deep rhythmic retch
of the tabby’s gags and coughs:
A nasty hairball

A most excellent review from School Library Journal!

Elizabeth Bird from School Library Journal wrote a most glowing (and thorough) review of our book, and we were so pleased. You can check it out here. A friend of mine asked me “is Elizabeth Bird your mom?”

Here’s why:

“For the child that desperately wants a cat, the child who already has a cat, and the child who has never even seen a cat, this is a great book. Basically that’s just a long and complicated way of saying that this book is for everyone. As funny and frisky as a kitty itself, this is one book of poetry you are not going to want to miss. An amazing debut and an amazing collection. Everything you need to know, you’ll learn from these cats.”

Wow.
