The Lovereading4Kids comment
Longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2014 - One of our Books of the Year 2013 Cat lovers everywhere will relish this beauty of a book. Jill Barton’s glorious large scale illustrations capture the different moods of this changeable feline star. Good cat or bad cat? Joyce Dunbar’s lyrical and rhythmic text beautifully describes the many kinds of cat within the one creature. Entertaining and thoughtful, this is a book to enjoy again and again.
Puss Jekyll Cat Hyde by Joyce Dunbar
Good puss or bad cat? Jekyll or Hyde? One and the same? Who decides? Puss Jekyll is the soft cuddly cat of the house grooming her fur, but at night she becomes Cat Hyde, hunting mice, all fang and claw. Page by page this delightful book explores the two very distinct personalities of the enchanting pet. Sleeping in a cosy spot or prowling in the moonlight, lapping milk from a bowl or stalking a defenceless trembling vole, playing with a ball of wool or savaging her prey, graceful and aristocratic or ruthless street fighter, can this really be the same creature?
The beautifully evocative rhythmic and rhyming text is accompanied by luminous coloured-pencil and watercolour drawings that make the reader want to reach out and feel the fur. This treat for cat-lovers of all ages is from the highly acclaimed author of bestselling picture books such as Tell Me Something Before You Go to Sleep, and the illustrator of such classics as Martin Waddell's The Pig in the Pond and the Boston Globe Horn Book Award winning In the Rain with Baby Duck.

Joyce Dunbar's poetic consideration of the nature of cats offers ... the very essence of feline duality: that the purring creature so soft and silky is also the demon that spits and springs. Wall Street Journal
