The Lovereading4Kids comment

May 2014 Debut of the Month A brilliantly quirky and humourous story with illustrations throughout. What's more surprising than finding a cat in your bath...? Finding a talking cat in your bath, particularly when your mum won't let you have a pet! Queen Sardine is a feline with serious Cattitude, but she has a problem. Can 8-year old Ivy help her fight a fang-knashing, rip-snarling, grizzle-bristling, belly-burping, stink-stonking, slobbersome monster without her mum getting wind of her plan? Perfect reading for those moving on to reading full novels.

Synopsis

Queen Sardine by Kate Willis-Crowly

Eight-year old Ivy isn’t allowed a pet, so she gets the shock of her life when a strange cat splash-lands in her bath. The shocks get bigger when Ivy discovers that the cat can talk and likes to be called Queen Sardine!

Queen Sardine tells Ivy that she needs help – there’s a monster living in her home and she’s scared to go back. Ivy loves cats, but helping Queen Sardine comes with its own problems. Not only does Ivy have to keep the cat a secret from her mum, she soon realises Queen Sardine is one demanding feline.
