Meo the Meerkat
By Kevin Crookes

Category age 1 - 11years
Meo the Meerkat is a lovable fun and mischievous baby meerkat who comes from the hot plains of the African wilderness. All he wants to do is go outside, play, explore, and in doing so, he finds himself in some interesting, if not dangerous, situations.
Kevin Crookes began writing six years ago when he discovered a talent for being able to make words rhyme whilst walking along a beach -- suddenly verses started to go through his mind in rhyme. At home, Kevin took out a pencil and pad and started writing what he had been thinking about. The verses turned into poems. One poem turned to ten and so on, to date he has written two poetry books called “AS IT IS” and “STILL AS IT IS”.
A wonderfully written and illustrated book with such a lovable character in Meo.
Beautifully illustrated and a great read.
I bought this book for my little sister as she loves meerkats - the illustrations are so adorable! My sister loves Meo :)
The charm of this book is it's illustrations which would obviously appeal to the young child it is pitched at. The illustrated characters have a friendly persona about them to make any young child smile.
I would like to support this book.

I was excited to read Mero the Meerkat. I voted for the content and illustrations were inexplicitly awesome for children. This book had such exciting detail. I am a Substitute Teacher knowing this book would be chosen the best children's book.
Children love rhyming and I try to introduce them to poems as well as various other reading styles. This book will fit nicely into our library.

As an author of Magic Glasses, a picture book by Child's Play International, I like this book. Animals interest me, hence my forthcoming poetry collection, Swimming with Whales, more at Skylark Publications UK website. www.patelyogesh.co.uk
