LoveReading View on I Don't Know What to Call My Cat

January 2017 Debut of the Month |  The naming of cats is notoriously difficult, as the little girl in this delightful picture book finds out. She tries all sorts of names for her new kitten, none of which meet with his approval, until finally – as cats will – he ups and leaves. She can’t find him anywhere, but somehow returns home with a new pet – something altogether different! Simon Philip’s text provides Ella Bailey with opportunity to illustrate a variety of scenes, each one packed with detail and marvellous characters, both human and feline! You don’t need to be a cat lover to appreciate this clever, unusual story and there are twists in the tale to make everyone laugh. ~ Andrea Reece
