The Lovereading4Kids comment

From the team behind the hugely popular Oi Frog! and Oi Dog! comes another daft and utterly wonderful new rhyming spectacular. Frog is in charge and has decided that cats must sit on gnats, much to Cat’s irritation. Dog tries to help, running through various rhyming combinations, but Frog’s rules are rules and Cat is stuck on the gnats, until Dog has a brainwave: what if Cat was a kitty, or a mog? Children (and adults) will love the increasingly silly seating arrangements, and the ending will have everyone laughing. Utterly brilliant! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Oi Cat! by Kes Gray

The next hilarious rhyming picture book from award-winning Kes Gray and Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner Jim Field, creators of the bestselling Oi Frog! and Oi Dog!

According to Frog . . .Cats sit on gnats, Dogs sit on logs, Raccoons sit on macaroons, Armadillos sit on pillows and Chicks sit on bricks. But wait! Cat doesn't like sitting on gnats, they keep biting his bottom!

Will Frog and Dog help him change the rules?

Reviews

Praise for the series:

It's not often I laugh out loud when reading picture books. This was one of those rare occasions...Great stuff -- Ann Giles Book Witch

A gem of a book which gets funnier and funnier as you read through the outrageous suggestions. Parents In Touch

I think perhaps the Gray/Field team have, between them, managed to out-dog Oi Frog with Oi Dog! It's absolutely un-missable Red Reading Hub

I simply implore you to buy it so you can enjoy it for yourself! I simply want to say that this was my most anticipated book of the year and it hasn't disappointed. It has exceeded all expectations...And I think it is my 'Book of the Year'! Book Bairn

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
