The cats are at the annual meeting of the MEOW Society. They always meet on the third full moon of the year. The MEOW Society is Memories Expressed in Our Writing. There are only thirteen short chapters. There is even one about a library cat. In the last chapter, they commit to keep on writing and to meet again next year.
The dogs have their own stories in Dog Diaries: Secret Writings of the WOOF Society. This is the first meeting of the WOOF Society - Words of Our Friends. This book also has thirteen short chapters. These dogs certainly show history and adventure from their own point of view. What a great variety of stories
Yes, the author is the famous Betsy Byars. However, the other two authors are her very own daughters. How wonderful that the family collaborated to write these amusing stories. Erik Brooks illustrated both books . The illustrations are precious and you can't tell if Erik has a preference for cats or dogs. Reluctant readers or beginning independent readers should read these to their own pets!
No, you don't have to like cats or dogs, but you will like these cat and dog stories.
