More About the Book: WOE! SCREAM! MEOW! ...PURR? What if our cats could talk? Would they ask endless questions about why we haven't given them wet food...again? Would they scream greetings at the first sign of life before the sun even rises? Linney certainly will. Have you met Linney yet? If not, prepared to be blessed! Lucy Knisley's online Linney comics are collected for the very first time in this gifty hardcover featuring the internet sensation, Linney. With all-new comics, this collection shows us just how amazing, and what a true gift, all cats are.

Kirkus Reviews, in a starred review, says, "An amusing, heartfelt, and bittersweet read that will resonate deeply with pet lovers."
