"It's All About Moi-ow" Sounds Like a Better Title
We have just completed a book trailer featuring the children's book, It's All About ME-ow, by Hudson Talbott.

Perhaps the book title should have been It's All About Moi-ow. That's how I would have written it.
It is just amazing how much information Talbott packs into his picture books. You learn a whole bunch of cool stuff without even knowing you're doing it! Talbott clearly knows a great deal about felines. His descriptions are both funny and insightful. The drawings convey nearly as much information as the words. The illustrations are both cute and true-to-life.
The recommended reading age is 4-8 years, but, frankly, anybody who likes cats, regardless of age, should immensely enjoy this book. (Misplaced modifier? Where? If you can spot it, you get a free pawtographed picture of moi. Just leave a comment below.)
This is a wonderful book to read-aloud. It's a great silent-reader, too. It's just plain wonderful on all accounts! You should check it out using your Evergreen Indiana card, if you have one. The book is available in the Evergreen Indiana online catalog.

P.S. Jimmy Scott included "The Cat Song" on the album Tonight I'll Sing For You (2012), which is available from iTunes. Here's the song showcased in a sweet video.
