Description

The Miss Meow Pageant is vintage Keens-Douglas: bursting with his unique brand of energy and mischievous humor.

Sparrow is a stray until Henrietta adopts him. He has a face only a mother could love, but Henrietta's friend Len coaxes her to enter her furry housemate in a feline beauty contest. Sparrow needs to train, of course. They are sure that his looks--not to mention gender--are no barrier, and they all prepare for the great day.

Editorial Review

Keens-Douglas' fifth title for young readers packs as much gaiety and superb storytelling mirth as his previous four offerings. His stalwart aficionados will be thrilled with the briskly paced plot, the several moments that give rise to peals of laughter, and the valiant progression...a most unlikely protagonist of many stripes and shades... Lafrance's drawings are boldly outlined, and possess an infectious off-kilter spirit.
