Description

“The messages of inclusion and acceptance are welcome. An enjoyable addition to noisy storytimes.” Kirkus

“This readaloud swiftly becomes a read-along, and little ones will quickly join in with the various animal sounds. A final comic punch will leave listeners giggling and wanting more.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Everybody Says Meow! Or do they? Fans of Sandra Boynton and of Jules Feiffer’s classic Bark, George will meow, bark, and ribbit when they hear this hilarious picture book about a waggish group of adorable animals that just cannot follow one simple instruction.

“Welcome to that magical time when everybody says, Meow!’ Ready?”

Well, not quite. There’s also a “Woof.” And a “Ribbit.”

A few words and a minimal background can make for plenty of mischief—especially when your characters are adorable, delightfully silly, and probably NOT LISTENING!

Fun, cumulative, and playful, Everybody Says Meow is perfect for preschoolers and toddlers just learning how to read.



About the Author

Constance Lombardo is an author, illustrator, and cat expert who can say meow in several languages. She is the creator of a middle grade series, Mr. Puffball, about a clever group of Hollywood cats. Stick Dog creator Tom Watson called Mr. Puffball “freaky, furry, and first-rate fun!” When she isn’t drawing or writing, Constance likes to visit the many waterfalls in Western North Carolina or rummage through Asheville’s local indie bookstores. Plus, she likes carrot cake. Visit her at www.constancelombardo.com.
