Two-time Caldecott Medal winner Chris Raschka celebrates the enduring bond between best friends—a young girl and her cat. Meow is an innovative and surprising tale of friendship, love, anger, hurt, kindness, and forgiveness. A must-have for the youngest reader and cat lovers everywhere.
A girl and her cat, Marigold, are best friends. When the girl accidently steps on Marigold’s tail, the surprised and hurt cat runs for cover. But after some time apart and an apology, all is forgiven, and Marigold and the girl are friends again.
Two-time Caldecott Medal winner Chris Raschka introduces various renditions of the word “meow” throughout, each offering a collaborative, educational, and innovative way to interpret the story. With two compelling main characters, an entire rainbow of emotions, a playful text composed almost exclusively using only four letters (M E O W), and lively illustrations, Meow is ideal for visual literacy, beginning readers, very young children, social and emotional development, and for classroom story hours.
