I have an extra special Cat Thursday for you this week! Our good Cat Thursday friend, Rosa from Cat Lady Confidential has written a very funny cat book, Stop Meowing and Go the F*ck to Sleep, and I'm reviewing it here today.
I enjoyed this book immensely. I'm a huge fan of Cortes and Mansbach’s adults-only bedtime story, Go the F*ck to Sleep, made famous by being read aloud by the illustrious Samuel L. Jackson. Anyone who has children can totally relate to that book. The same can be said for anyone who is the parent of a cat, or cats. They seriously do not want us to get any sleep. To say that cats are high maintenance is an understatement. We all know that they run our lives. Rosa perfectly captures this reality in this hilarious little book. I also must mention the brilliant illustrations. Rosa's illustrator, Diana Necsulescu perfectly captures the distress of the woman (Rosa) and the utter rapture and bliss of the kitty (Mr. Cat) who is clearly enjoying himself. Wonderfully expressive illustrations complete a book and that is clearly evident here.
The perfect addition to any cat lover's cat book library, Stop Meowing and Go the F*ck to Sleep would also make an excellent gift. Just make sure they have a sense of humor first. I'm a big fan of swearing (studies show...swearing means you're smarter. 😄 ) so this book scored extra points with me. Highly recommended!
