Wonderful Watercolors Jun 26, 2009
Thoroughly enjoyed this book - the "lessons" are good and the paintings byErike Olsen give me quite a chuckle.
Truly wonderful little book Jan 26, 2009
I purchased this book sight-unseen, based on a review in Cat Fancy. Upon reading "Purr More, Hiss Less" I fell in love with it. The sayings are pithy and memorable, and the sketches are remarkably cute. I found small nuggets of wisdom on nearly every page. More importantly, I found myself laughing out loud over and over again. I started with one book for my husband. I have now purchased "Purr More, Hiss Less" for my mother, my best friends, my nephew, and perhaps others. Highly recommended!
Fun book! Dec 26, 2008
I got a copy of this book for myself & 1 for the people I catsit for because it was so adorable! I love the illustrations & the saying are true & touch your heart.
Purrfect Fun! Jun 27, 2008
"Purr More, Hiss Less Heavenly Lessons I Learned from My Cat by Allia Zobel is an aptly titled book for the cat lover in all of us. At 222 pages long, it's an enjoyable romp through watercolor pages that are little works of art, each accompanying a thought provoking saying penned by Ms. Zobel. Gratifiying for kids and adults alike, it contains large doses of the ahh and ha ha factor. Each page w/ saying could be a framable work of art but then, you'd have to buy another book....better to have restraint and just look at the book often. Ms. Zobel is the definitive authority on the humor of cats and the life lessons they share."
