I love Muningning a lot. Once, I lost sight of him and varied visions bothered me. It's probably true that we need to lose and seek to see what is really important.
Mahal na mahal ko Muningning. Nang minsang nawala siya sa aking paningin, sari-saring larawan ang gumambala sa akin. Talaga yatang kailangang may mawala at hanapin upang makita ang tunay na mahalaga sa atin.

Citation from the 2016 National Children's Book Awards:
This book was chosen to be in the top 9 because it was very accurate in showing how cat owners feel when their cats are missing and how they imagined what happened to their cats while they were missing. It was also very relatable, like how cat owners can relate to how the boy felt when his cat was missing and how it frightened him so much. —Pheonna Heart Ragasa
