Elise Loweabout this book: "The Story of Meow" was inspired by the true story of a stray kitten. Meow came into my life in 1999, when I was living in a student house in Leeds. After befriending my housemates and me, she took up residence in our lounge and quickly became part of our student family. However, as the Christmas holidays approached, we had to make alternative arrangements for the kitten. One of our housemates consulted her parents for advice, and they suggested bringing Meow to their farm in Devon, where she lived happily ever after.
Another housemate, Katie Freer, asked me to write the book (the idea was suggested by her late aunt, Rita). After I wrote the story, Katie's husband, Tom, got to work on the illustrations. It was his first attempt at illustrating a book, and I think he did a great job.
We kept the book a secret from the rest of our former housemates and surprised them (and their children) with the printed copies. It was worth it for their excited reactions.
Even though I wrote the book for them, I hope that other families will enjoy it too.
