The Lovereading4Kids comment

Everybody's favourite all-action cat is back in the third instalment of the hilarious cat-superhero series, from award-winning author and queen of comedy, Jeanne Willis.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Tiger was an ordinary cat until he licked a toxic sock under James’s bed – now he is Supercat! While James and Supercat are at the funfair, all the grown-ups mysteriously disappear. They suspect Count Backwards and follow him. Can they rescue the grown-ups and avoid being caught? Full of fun, laughter and slapstick comedy, this is a delightful read. (Ages 8–10)
