Highly entertaining, this is a touching story about an unlikely friendship between two cats. Stuck up Sir Cecil aspires to the higher way of life – such as the one his master leads; Cubby is a scruffy down to earth cat who relishes Sir Cecil’s luxurious lifestyle. How the two become firm friends after a number of serious mishaps is delightfully told in the easy-to-read chapters of this book. This is just one of a number of Pocket Money Puffins.

Synopsis

Silly Cecil and Clever Cubs: A Pocket Money Puffin by Jeanne Willis

Sir Cecil is a pompous pedigree cat who can't believe it when scruffy Mr Cubs turns up uninvited at Futtock Mansion and refuses to leave. But then Mr Cubs agrees to help Sir Cecil fulfill a lifelong dream - with hilariously disastrous results.
