The Lovereading4Kids comment

Big, bold, wacky and entertaining illustrations are the real hallmark of this great title and it’s a terrific way of introducing all manner of farm yard animals to young toddlers using rather a naughty cat as the main character.


It's So Unfair! by Pat Thomson

Cat has been thrown out of the farmhouse in disgrace: the animals in the farmyard are prepared to be righteously angry on his behalf. But each time they question him, yet another piece of mischief gets mentioned! When the farmer hears of it, he is prepared to re-instate the cat, until he hears the final 'small' misdemeanour the cat confesses to.


Animal solidarity is brilliantly conveyed in Jonathan Allen's big, bold and hugely entertaining illustrations. Guardian A funny, colourful gem.
