  1. Me-WOW! I'm purring!
    Best fishes,
    Ms. Lee Wardlaw

    1. Wow, thank you for dropping by Ms. Wardlaw! Here at PES we LOVE your books, especially Won Ton, and we're so excited that you won the Chickadee Award!

  2. Me, too, Ms. Phelps! My cats are me-wow-ing, too, especially Papaya, who was adopted by my son when he (son) was eight. They are still best buddies, 9 years later: playing together, reading together, sleeping together, even (when I'm not looking) lapping out of the same cereal bowl together! BTW, there is a teacher's guide for Won Ton (including a recipe for Kitty Litter cake) on my website: http://www.leewardlaw.com/Won-Ton-A-Cat-Tale-Told-in-Haiku.htm

    Purrs, Lee
