A Cat Called Scratch by Jonathan Long


A Cat Called Scratch by Jonathan Long

Scratch the cat has never been so itchy. A flea has hopped into his fur and no matter how much he scratches he can't get rid of it! However, Scratch isn't easily defeated-he has some clever ideas in mind to evict the flea once and for all. But despite his drastic endeavours, including vigorously vacuuming himself, a hideous haircut, and a trip to the carwash, the flea is determined to stay. Will Scratch ever be free of his lousy louse? This enormously entertaining text is the perfect outlet for Korky Paul's wonderful illustrations.


Korky Paul's contribution to children's books is very exciting. His work is crammed with humour and details, it's lively, full of movement and forces the reader to turn the page. Books For Keeps

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
