Book Synopsis:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of I Could Pee on This, Francesco Marciuliano, comes a lesson from cats in resistance. 

Cats are done with humans’ crap. For too long they have put up with baby talk, the humiliation of holiday costumes, and the social injustice of being told, “No.” They will not sleep through this anymore. We humans have woken the beast, and in this book they have gathered together to reclaim their voice, loudly and repeatedly until we pay attention. Watch the uprising unfold, through anthems such as “Redefine Terms,” “Accepted,” “Decide,” “A New Dawn,” and “Just What Do You Think You’re Doing?” Show support for your feline friends and try to understand why they’re so spitting mad.

My Review:

This was a cute and surprisingly appropriate book to read for our current political environment.  I found myself smiling at the cat-ish twist the poetic calls to rally against the man.  The poems were meant to be tongue-in-cheek but I took the sentiment to heart for many of them and found them recharging my political batteries. The pictures were fun and complimented the poems purrfectly.   The book was a little laggy on my e-reader so definitely pick this one up in print.  It is a cute book with poems and pictures to please both your cat-loving friends and clever enough to peak your political friend’s intellect.

My Rating:4 Stars
