Mewsings/Musings By Barbara Florio Graham


Mewsings/Musings combines the subtle wit and gentle satire of award-winning writer, Barbara Florio Graham, back to back with her celebrity cat, Simon Teakettle, in a clever flip book designed to "a-muse" readers of all ages.

Barbara's satiric pieces on writing and teaching are coupled with several of her award-winning humorous poems as well as witty comments on living with the "classy cat in the black fur tuxedo."

Mewsings includes many of Simon's Last Meow pieces from Cats Magazine as well as a selection of his writings for radio and other media. 

This 80-page book has laminated front and back covers, as well as a pull-out "centrefold" of Simon I sprawled on a fur rug. The winner of an international award in 2002, Mewsings/Musings is the “purrfect” gift for all ages, at just $20 postpaid, from B.F. Graham, 535 Charles-Desnoyers, Gatineau, QC J8P 3X4.
