May 2015 Book of the Month This tale of the busy Hurrys may well strike a chord with families everywhere. Mr and Mrs Hurry are always rushing, but especially in the mornings. One day they dash off to their respective jobs in such a hurry that neither notices they’ve left their son Harry at home. What will he do? He’s too small to go to school on his own, and too small to stay at home on his own either. Fortunately, Tiggs the cat realises what’s happened. Family life is exaggerated to great comic effect, and children will love the idea of Tiggs taking control. A funny, satisfying story for emerging readers. ~ Andrea Reece
