Editorial Reviews

Review

"4 stars."
- LitPick

"perfectly captures the odd, sweet, and sometimes sassy minds of our feline companions."
Tails Magazine

"With poems like 'Who Is That On Your Lap,' 'Nudge' and 'Kneel Before Me,' this quirky book will surely induce laughter and whimsical from all who decide to delve into its poetry."
-Trend Hunter

"Poems by cats? Honestly? Yes."I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats' once opened, is as evil as an evil little book can get. It went from desk to desk to desk here at The Post, clawing anyone who's had or known a feline into its silly spell and sucking precious tens of minutes into its hairy vortex.

In four cat-egories - family, work, play, and existence - Francesco Marciuliano (writer of the comic strip "Sally Forth") has given voice to cats' 'every desire, their every conflict, their every epiphany.' Also why they'll put an entire paw in your wine glass when you have a date over."
- The Denver Post

"Francesco Marciuliano has collected poems by cats into a hilarious little book. From expressing their love for dead mice to pulling over Christmas trees, cats reveal their genius and neuroses"
Shelf Awareness

About the Author

Francesco Marciuliano is the author of Sally Forth, an internationally syndicated family comic strip that appears in nearly 800 newspapers around the world (created by Greg Howard). He was also the head writer for the highly praised PBS children's series SeeMore's Playhouse. He lives in New York City.

More About the Author

Francesco Marciuliano is writing his own bio in the third person either in the absolutely ridiculous attempt to convince you he somehow possesses the clout to attract his own Boswell-like biographer or because he has suffered a complete nervous breakdown and has convinced himself he actually hired a writer with a strikingly similar name. That aside, Francesco is the author of the syndicated comic strip "Sally Forth," which appears in newspapers across the country, world, and maybe in that alternate universe on "Fringe." He was also a head writer for the PBS series "SeeMore's Playhouse," for which one of his episodes won two 2007 Daytime Emmys. Francesco has written for the Onion News Network, Smosh, McSweeney's, and had a play produced at the New York International Fringe Festival. "I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats" is his very first book and Francesco hopes saying "first" does not sound presumptuous on his part. Francesco Marciuliano is available for viewing Monday-Saturday, 9AM to 5PM (closed on Sundays and holidays). Please inquire about group-rate discounts as well as the audio tour guide inside his head.

Only a cat could have written this treasury of cat-think.
Poetry and prose certain to entertain and amuse every cat lover.
Even the human ones.

The book is a small hard-cover that fits on a table without taking up a lot of space.
Easily knocked to the floor. Repeatedly.

Type is large enough for a geezer (like my person) to enjoy even in less-than-adequate light.

Cat portraits showing our furry brethren in cute and/or compromising poses illustrate the pages.
While reading the poetry I keep saying, "Just like Mystery" or "Just like Sparx" or "Just like Pogo", etc.

I enjoyed it very much and trust that everyone will.
2 dewclaws up!

Just received "I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats" today and have already finished it, wiping the tears of laughter as I went along. This is the perfect gift for the cat lover in your life, although it isn't necessary to be one to find the book thoroughly delightful and laugh-out-loud funny. Kudos to Francesco Marciuliano and his brilliant wit. He has a fan for life!

This book had me laughing out loud on almost every page! The poems, from the p.o.v. of a variety of felines, are just priceless. Most are paired with the perfect full color cat portrait, bringing the humor and wit up a notch. Terrific for cat lovers, but really witty enough to tickle anyone's funny bone, this will definitely be in many of my friend's stockings this Christmas.

I took one look at this book, rolled my eyes, and thought, "Jeez, not another stupid book full of cute cat photos and saccharin-sweet inane text. When will they stop putting out this crap? Why do people buy it?"

I picked it up anyway and started reading from a random page. When I was done, I turned to my companion and gave a dramatic reading. I flipped to another page, and then another. I immediately bought a copy for a friend as a birthday present, but gave it to her only after I'd read it from cover to cover and committed a couple of the pieces to memory.

"Why Are You Screaming?" is a masterpiece, but "Seriously?" is my favorite.

I must say that I remain slightly skeptical about it being written by cats. The whole opposable thumb thing just seems like a big limitation.

True story: I hate cats. Yet, I like this book. It's like having a cat without having a cat. And it's funny. So, it's like having a funny cat without having a funny cat. Sort of. Anyway, I liked it and I think you should buy it. Please.

Even if you hate cats.

I said, please.

I puchased this book for my wife who adores all cats. Ok, I also purchased it because I adore the four cats that enrich our lives by just being around. We receieved it yesterday, hunkered down on the couch last night, and read the poems aloud to one another. It was truly delightful, we laughed and laughed. We tried to figure out which of our four would have been most likely to pen each particular entry.If you live cats, this book is a lot of fun.

Also the book arrived before promised and very well packaged. Good deal all around.

I received this as a gift, and immediately read it, then read it again, then promptly ordered two more copies to give to friends and family. I suppose I could re-gift my copy but I just cannot bear to have it leave my side at the moment. I find myself looking at my cats and composing a poem that they might pen. And I find myself laughing when I recognize that with their antics they could have written a couple of these poems themselves. What a remarkable author to offer this insightful little tribute and laugh-out-loud perfect gift.

This book is clever and hysterically funny. I had pre-ordered 3 copies and now I'm ordering 3 more. This is the only gift I'm giving this year. I have 5 rescue cats, and they say they could pee on the book!
