STEWIE GRIFFIN MEETS GRUMPY CAT IN A BOOK FOR CAT LOVERS OF ANY AGE!

He's free! The Amazing Hamweenie, legend in his own mind, hero to millions of adoring fans who have yet to meet him, has finally escaped the evil clutches of the little girl who showers him with love and stuffs him full of delectable treats. Where will our tortured star go? To the circus, of course! The spotlight of center ring beckons him -- the elephants, monkeys, and tigers in desperate need of a leader. Hamweenie will gift them with his presence!

So why is it that his greatness goes unappreciated? Does no one recognize a true star when they see one?

In this companion to The Amazing Hamweenie, Patty Bowman brings a touch of Edward Gorey,  a dash of Stewie Griffin, a pinch of Grumpy Cat, and even a shake of Maru to the secret mind of one adorable pet cat.

Praise for The Amazing Hamweenie Escapes

"This is a follow-up to The Amazing Hamweenie, and Bowman again captures perfectly the superior attitude and maddening actions displayed by so many cats. Children will chuckle at the disconnect between Hamweenie’s words and the action depicted in the illustrations, which suggest a lighter, more colorful version of Edward Gorey’s finely detailed drawings. For fans of Hamweenie’s first adventure, and perfect for children who appreciate Garfield the cat." —School Library Journal
Patty Bowman's fat, lazy, and extremely ungraceful (not to mention ungrateful) tabby cat Bandini was the inspiration behind Hamweenie. The author/illustrator of The Amazing Hamweenie, she lives in Brooklyn, NY.
