Cats from all over the city meet once a year for the secret MEOW Society meeting. MEOW stands for Memories Expressed in Our Writing. Cats are invited to share stories from their diaries. Each has a different story to tell, from encounters with dogs to Christmas trees and babies. Humor and creativity make this book an enjoyment to read. Students who like cats and using their imagination will love Cat Diaries. It would help encourage students to keep diaries and better their writing skills.
