The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is the perfect book for anyone who shares their house with a cat (or indeed a new sibling). In lively, varied double page spreads Cat describes his life as undisputed king of the house until – terrible day – there’s a new arrival, one who doesn’t understand the rules of the house and, though perfectly friendly and even affectionate, upsets the natural order. It is a dog, in Cat’s opinion strange and disgusting. Except, when Dog goes out for a walk, King Cat realises things aren’t the same without his new house mate. Warm, funny and full of unexpected life lessons, King Cat rules OK! ~ Andrea Reece

A brilliantly observed, fantastically funny story about friendship, compromise and adjusting to change. Perfect for families about to welcome a new baby - and cat and dog lovers alike. From the award-winning author-illustrator Marta Altes.
Meet a cat who is the king of his house, until something terrible happens! Someone else arrives and they are dribbly and disgusting. Will King Cat ever get used to having a dog around?
