The Catnapping Cat by Judy Allen'I've cast thousands of spells,' said the witch to her cat. 'I've flown twice round the world and my battery's flat. It's been a long day. I need a good rest. I wonder what kind of a place would be best.' Join the witch and her long-suffering cat, Matt on their search for the best bed in the world. They join badgers in their sets, otters on the sea, birds in the air and bats on trees, but nothing seems quite perfect until they remember their own very comfortable bed!
'The insidiousness of evil is beautifully handled in Allen's exploration of jealousy and revenge.'
... Highly recommended, school libraries should add THE BURNING to their collection and explore other titles by this gifted author. -- Beth Ashworth, Teacher Librarian, Fiction Focus THE BURNING 'The writing is tense and the complex plotting assured, which adds up to an exciting, imaginative tale ...
'This is a fascinating book which will not remain long on the shelves but should certainly be available for young teenage readers.'
'Elemental is exactly the word to describe its strange plot. ... Spellbinding.'
's rhyming text is lively and fun with many lovely turns of phrase. Philip Giordano's bold and graphic illustrations are amusing... -- Child Education Filled with bright, bold and somewhat intense illustrations which fill the page and the eye with a sense of immediacy... enhanced by the flowing rhyme scheme and repetition of ideas. This is a book which young readers will enjoy reading, for the fun of the language and the ease and pleasure of understanding an enjoyable story. -- writeaway.org'
