The Lovereading4Kids comment
A wonderful and humorous family adventure for the ever active Gaskitts. This time it is Horace the cat who has a starring role when he follows a pram and finds himself hot on the heels of a thief! Soon Mr and Mrs Gaskitt and Gus and Gloria are also chasing the pram and the missing pets that are its secret cargo.
The Cat Who Got Carried Away by Allan Ahlberg
The third book of Allan Ahlberg's mini-masterpieces for early readers. Welcome to the latest grand and gripping Gaskitt story, in which Gus and Gloria have a lot of running to do, Mrs Gaskitt hardly ever gets out of bed and something dreadful happens to Horace! (Also starring: a brainy rat named Randolph; a barking pram; and a considerable number of penguins.) What more do you want?
You can also collect the other Gaskitt stories: The Man Who Wore All His Clothes, winner of The Children's Book Award (Younger Children's category) 2002, The Woman Who Won Things and The Children Who Smelled a Rat.
