There’s a wicked sense of humour at play in this punchy story the cuts to the heart of the complex relationship between pets and their owners. Tallulah’s a nice girl and, when she gets Tom as a kitten she trains him to be the perfect pet. Tallulah is good at cat; she understands exactly what Tom needs. Tom decides he’s got some learning to do. He studies Tallulah carefully. Soon, he can walk, eat, dress and more – just like Tallulah. Unfortunately, Tom is not such a nice cat…

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
