The best-selling author of The Sheep Pig tells a charming and witty story about a bold young kitten who is always getting into mischief! Aristotle lives with Bella Donna, a very kind, very witchy woman who protects Aristotle as best she can – and especially helps out with some magic from time to time. Bob Graham’s illustrations make Aristotle adorable!

Synopsis

Aristotle by Dick King-Smith

This is a brand-new format for Dick King-Smith's enchanting story about a very mischievous kitten.

Aristotle, the witch's kitten, is so adventurous; it's just as well cats have nine lives! Luckily the good witch Bella Donna is always on hand to help him out. Follow his fur-raising adventures in this enchanting illustrated story by two of the most important names in children's books today.

It features a fresh new look for the B-format paperback edition of this classic tale, with black and white illustrations.

Reviews

As always, King-Smith is a superb storyteller and his trademark gentle humour pervades this tale... both charming and funny. School Librarian

About the Author

Dick King-Smith

Dick King-Smith was born in 1922 and brought up in Gloucestershire.

Dick served with the Grenadier Guards during World War II and was mentioned in dispatches. He then spent twenty years working as a farmer and a short period teaching in a primary school before becoming a full-time writer.

Dick wrote over seventy stories, many of which have animal characters for the simple reason that, "I like them, I've always kept a lot of pets, and because it's fun putting words in their mouths." His farming years were the inspiration for many of his books, and pigs have featured in several of them because they are his favourite animal. Dick won the 1984 Guardian Fiction Award for The Sheep-Pig, which was later turned into an Oscar-winning film, 'Babe'. He died in 2011.

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.
