Let's Read! Cats Ahoy! by Peter Bently

Let's get reading with Macmillan early readers! The complete story and original illustrations of Cats Ahoy! by Peter Bently and Jim Field have been specially re-designed into an early reader format. Created with expert advice from a literacy consultant, this new version is intended to help and encourage children who are growing in reading confidence. When Alfonso the cat hears there's a boat coming into harbour, he hatches a plan involving a ghost pirate ship, some gullible fishermen and LOTS of cats! Winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011.
