The Lovereading4Kids comment

A mischievous story featuring Ava and her imaginary cat Squishy - this is the fourth in the Squisky McFluff series. Told in full colour throughout, this is the perfect stepping stone from picture books to older fiction and to inspire young children to develop their storytelling skills through using their imagination. February 2015 Book of the Month


Squishy McFluff: Meets Mad Nana Dot by Pip Jones

Oh yippee! Young Ava is very excited to see Nana Dot (who's rather short-sighted). Nan's fun! And she's funny! And if that's not enough, Can Ava's Mad Nana see Squishy McFluff? Ava and Squishy are up to their normal no-good when Dad whisks them off to Nana Dot's - Mum's got to go to the hospital to bring back Ava a baby sister! But Mad Nana Dot's lost her glasses so can't see Squishy McFluff... and a trip to the hairdresser's, the post office, the fishmonger all end in adorable disaster.


Kids love reading and so we invited the Lovereading4kids reader review panel to read and review the first title in the series, Squishy McFluff: The Invisible Cat. You can read their full reviews here.

Matilda Greenacre, age 7 - 'This is a great book for early readers or mums to read to their children. The whole book is written in rhyme, lovely for read out loud.' Sam Harper, age 10 - 'Ava and Squishy make a mischievous and very funny team...A lovely story which is made even better by the clever combination of rhyme and illustrations. Glorious!' Isaac East, age 7 - 'Squishy McFluff is a funny book that rhymes. The cat is cheeky and with her friend Ava they of lots of mischievous things.' Evie Aconley, age 7 - 'A really fun book to read! I loved it!!' Lauren Randall, age 6 - 'Great book if you like rhyming stories and cats.' Daniel Bisland, age 6 - 'I give it 10* because it is funny. I love the colourful pictures. I wish it was longer though! I can’t wait for Supermarket Sweep.' Ophelia Robinson Beesley, age 7 - 'It has happiness and comedy but slight sadness in the middle but it is not too sad. Anyway Pip Jones has created a loving family of characters no reason to not enjoy. Especially suitable for bed time.' Toby Pickering, age 7 - 'It was a very interesting story full of adventure and you think her mum isn’t going to like Squishy, well you’re right!' Emma, age 7 - 'I loved this book, it makes me want an invisible cat of my own. I could read this easily on my own, but the story made me think about what my invisible cat would look like.'
