Harri Harri and the Cat Club by Liz Haigh


Harri Harri and the Cat Club by Liz Haigh

Angharad's friend has lost her cat so they form a club to find it - with some unexpected results! A delightful read for 7-9 year-olds.


This is a slim novel that would best suit 911 year-olds. Following in the style footsteps of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, this is a diary with cartoons that focuses clearly on a brief period in the heroine's life. The story is lengthened by the pictures which are drawn by the author's teenage daughter with charming and effective simplicity. Harri's best friend loses her kitten, so Harri and her friends set out to find it. They make plans, most of which prove unsuccessful. The appeal of the story is that the children do exactly what we expect them to do. Having read it with my daughters, they felt that members of the Cat Club behaved like children they knew! Harri is a realistic protagonist, with friends who occasionally can't stand her. Her confidence is perceived as bossiness, and her voice is convincingly stroppy on occasion! As an adult, I can see where Haigh is incorporating her teaching voide, with definitions of words anc clear messages about pet care. The target audience won't notice this, and will look forward to other stories in the same series.
