The Lovereading4Kids comment

A humorous story about a cat and its owner who want quite different things out of their relationship. Mr Pusskins is adored by his owner who wants to pet and brush and feed and snuggle him. Mr Pusskins doesn't want any of that. He wants adventure! But adventure is scary...! Luckily, Mr Pusskins is rescued. Now, he does appreciate being cared for!

There is fun and excitement on every page as well as a mixture of emotions brought to life through this superb character.

Synopsis

Mr Pusskins (Book and CD) by Sam Lloyd

Meet Mr Pusskins. He's got it all...an owner who adores him, who tends to his every need, who plays mouse games with him, who brushes his fur, who reads him a bedtime story every night, and tells him how much she loves him. But Mr Pusskins is bored. What Mr Pusskins really wants is 'adventure', and so one night he goes off in search of it...But is Mr Pusskins' new lifestyle all it's cracked up to be? This brilliantly funny story is told through great splashes of visual humour, and touches of real tenderness. Mr Pusskins' expressive character is skilfully brought to life by Sam's art, and every page is a delight. A hilarious but touching tale from an exciting award-winning talent.
