The Lovereading4Kids comment
A touching story about a special friendship between a boy and the cat he finds. Mr Tipps is a frightened stray cat. He is timid and lonely until, one day he finds a lovely bowl of milk put out for him. Who has done it? Returning day after day, Mr Timms makes friends with a lonely boy. Together they see off all kinds of fears, happy in each other’s company. But, one day, there is no bowl of milk. Mr Tipps becomes fearful again and the boy is lonely. Luckily, the two are reunited and all ends happily.
A beautifully atmospheric story celebrating the power of friendship, from the creator of Tobias and the Super Spooky Ghost Book.
A Home for Mr Tipps by Tom Percival
It's a hard life for Mr Tipps, a frightened stray cat who lives under an old dustbin - until he meets a lonely boy and a wonderful friendship is formed. Before meeting young Ethan, Mr Tipps is scared of literally EVERYTHING: he’s worried about the wind that wailed and would never climb a tree. But the friendship with the boy helps him gain confidence, and the boy and the cat live some fabulous adventures together. Until one day, the boy doesn't come to play and Mr Tipps finds himself lost and in danger. Will the two friends ever see each other again?
Praise for Tobias and the Super Scary Ghost Book:
'A gloriously fun book' - Derek Landy, author of Skulduggery Pleasant
'A Halloween romp for younger boys and girls'. - The Daily Mail
'Percival is the illustrator of the Skulduggery Pleasant novels and this, his first picture book, has some lovely delicate touches behind the cartoon faces of the children -- notice how Tobias fades gently as the years have passed outside' - The Daily Mail
'A heart-warming yet frightfully ghoulish story; Percival's unique use of colour coupled with his multi-media approach to illustration make this debut picture book a welcomed breath of fresh air.' - Primary Times'Just the right amount of fun and fear.' - Mums Know Best
