Our Cat Cuddles by Gervase Phinn

Rich in language, humour and rhyme, this hilarious tale is perfectly complemented by Amanda Montgomery-Higham's witty illustrations. Lizzie and Dominic desperately want a kitten but they get much more than they bargain for!

Reviews

A forlorn little kitten grows and grows until he becomes a fearsome lion. Written by a children's poet and former teacher, this rhyming story rattles along at a lively pace, full of wonderful words and pictures. Practical Parenting Magazine Here is a book which gives children a feeling for words and sounds, a joy for teachers and parents to read out loud, which uses a very ordinary, everyday kind of story to develop a very extraordinary use of language, ordinary language turned into poetry. This is a picture book written by a children's storyteller who is a master at conjuring up pictures in the children's minds and holding their attention just by the use of sounds. How many descriptions of a cat can there be? Read this story aloud - it's a book to be shared - and you'll be amazed. And there's a twist in the tale at the end, to keep the children guessing.
