The Lovereading4Kids comment

A warm-hearted story that captures the very special friendship between a boy and a cat. Magnificat is homeless; she needs food and shelter so when she finds Ben, a boy who is kind to her, she decides he should be the one to take care of her. But does Ben want a cat to look after? With troubles of his own, looking after Magnificat seems like the last thing he needs. The developing relationship and mutual support of Ben and Magnificat is a touching story

Synopsis

Magnificat by Marilyn Edwards

The boy walked down the aisle and as he passed the cat he bent down and gently stroked her back with two fingers. In that second, Ben felt something akin to an electric shock. The cat stopped her grooming and looked up at him with large amber eyes. She had felt it too.

When a little cat finds herself in an unfamiliar and frightening town, she finds refuge in the local church - and so does local boy, Ben, whose life with his mother is becoming strained. The unlikely pair form a close relationship and soon find comfort in each other until Ben’s beloved cat is snatched from outside his home. As Magnificat struggles to survive a life in the wild, Ben desperately searches for her, refusing to give up even when it looks like she’s gone forever...

Beautiful illustrations from animal portrait artist France Bauduin accompany the chapters of this gentle story, told through the eyes of a cat. The sister novel to White Chin, Marilyn Edwards has built up a loyal fanbase who enjoy her tales exploring the relationship between humans and animals.

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.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
