provided by author

Combining a warm, humorous, and conversational style of writing with stunning photos and charming artwork, readers are immediately immersed into the world of Zee, a lovable male Maine Coon cat, and Zoey, a high-spirited female Bengal cat, as they share their amazing relationship and bond that formed between the two of them in The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey. What makes this story so compelling, is that the author narrates the journey of the cats through the personal trials and tribulations of her own life. Readers will easily be able to relate to the many moments the author shares and her spot on accuracy in understanding the many nuances of a cat is so realistic, one might think the author was a cat herself! You will be certain to smile and laugh on more than one occasion as you share this incredible journey with Zee and Zoey and learn the ultimate message they teach us – to embrace the ordinary in life and dare to make it extraordinary.
About the Author:

My Review:
Not your typical reading book, but definitely a fantastically written one. I loved everything about this book from first page to last. While not a fiction story, this book instantly captured me and took me on a fun adventure about life…..with cats. 

One fun thing about this book was that my kids enjoyed it. I love being able to review a book and have them join me in the process. My oldest, who is 9 years old, adores animals of every kind…including snakes….*shivers*……and so he was all over the book in a heart beat. As he strolled along side the cats in this book, he found the photos to be awesome. He told me “awwww, look at the beautiful kittens mommy”. LOVED it. 

And, I have to agree with him. While I am more of a dog lover, reading this book about cats and how they become a big part of your life, and how they can be the most loyal and loving of companions was a true treat. Animals are sensitive to human needs, to human emotions and if given the chance, can be the best of therapy for those who need them. 

If you are looking for a book to read that will capture your heart, and include lots of vibrant photos to share with your family, then I highly suggest this well though out, interestingly chronicled story of two cats, and the lives they shared, the owners that loved them, and the true meaning of life, love, and happiness. . You’ll look at cats (and animals in general!) in a whole new way and become instantly addicted to Zee, Zoey and the heart of the book. A phenomenally written 5 Book worthy book, no doubt about it! I’m thinking now, we may get a kitten…….;-).
