Review of Meowl!

The city of Up was filled with cats and dogs of all different sizes and colours. Whilst the city of Up many seem like a fun place to live in, there was one problem. Cats and dogs stay separate because they are different. Meowl! by Leah Ingledew tells the story of a puppy and a kitten who breaks the rules. What happens when the truth comes out?

This was a fun, short book to read. The book contains adorable illustrations created by Ingledew. The illustrations really made the story come to life. What I liked the most about the book was the message behind the story. Many assume the false idea that cats and dogs cannot live together peacefully, and so the story aims to change that perspective.

Since this book is targeted towards young children, it’s vital that the story contains valuable lessons that they can take away. One of the things they can learn is the importance of not judging others just because they look different.

There was nothing that I disliked about the book. The simple sentences used in the story allow it to be read by children on their own. At 32 pages, it won’t take them long to finish it.

Overall, I would rate this book 4 out of 4 stars because of the positive things I mentioned above. I didn’t find any mistakes, so it is exceptionally edited. I believe this would make a great bedtime story for your little one. This book is also fantastic for teachers to read in the classroom. The messages in the story can serve as a discussion point after they’ve listened to it. I highly recommend this book to children who love animals. In terms of the age range, I think this book is suitable for ages 3-7 years.

This books seems like one that children would have a fun time reading. I'm amazed by the author's creativity. How could he come up with something as interesting as the city of Up, filled with only cats and dogs?

This sounds like a creative, fun book for young children. I like the message about not judging others because they look different, and I like that the message doesn't seem overly intrusive to spoil the fun. I guess "meowl" is a combination of what dogs and cats say! Good review.

When two given society places a restriction and two of these opposing parties break this law, something fun later happens. I'd love to find out.
