How far will Mr Tiddles the cat go to keep his loving master Harry happy? Harry has longed for a cat but, when Mr Tiddles arrives, things begin to get a bit out of hand. Every day he brings Harry something new; it starts with a mouse but soon Harry is waking up to some very generous presents including a train set and a horse. When Harry decides to find the source of the generous gifts he finds himself face to face with the Queen and also discovers just how audacious Mr Tiddles is prepared to be. A rich flight of fancy, this is a delightfully exuberant story.

Synopsis

The Diabolical Mr Tiddles by Tom McLaughlin

Meet Mr Tiddles - he's not your everyday cat. He's a cat with attitude! When Harry gets a cat of his own, he does everything to make Mr Tiddles happy. Mr Tiddles wants to make Harry happy too. He brings him little presents ...the odd expired mouse or two, but when Harry wakes up to find a trainset, priceless works of art, dinosaurs, robots and a horse named Alan in his bedroom, he realizes things are completely out of control!

Reviews

"An outstanding picture book debut, from a very talented visual storyteller. Tom McLaughlin obviously comes from good stock." Oliver Jeffers, author of Up And Down - and Tom's cousin

“Mr Tiddles is a lovable rascally character. Great fun!” Claire Freedman, author of the Aliens Love Underpants series
