Synopsis

I Don't Like Gloria! by Kaye Umansky

A humorous picture book taking a sideways look at the chaos caused by new arrivals! Colin the dog is not happy. A newcomer has arrived: Gloria the cat. Gloria eats from Colin's bowl, takes up residence in Colin's basket, and becomes the all-round centre of attention. But hey. What's this? A box has arrived. Jeffrey the rabbit has come to live with them. Colin and Gloria finally come to agree on something: We REALLY don't like Jeffrey!

Reviews

It is a brilliant book because it has an animal cast that conveniently deflects the emotional focus and, at the same time, allows it to be anything but delicate. The Observer
