This is a cute story with easy to read prose and cute illustrations. My son likes the drawings but says it would be silly for a cat to forget how to meow. As a huge cat lover he found the idea sad but says he is happy that the cat never gave up until he found his meow once more. We read this together one night but he never requested this particular book a second time. I feel younger children might enjoy this one much more. We received an evaluation copy in exchange for our honest opinion.
