What a clever idea, a children's picture book about the No 10 cat. We've all seen Larry, the Downing Street cat on the news , watched him walk nonchalantly in and out of the black door, and been amused by him. Now Larry gives us the lowdown on what happens inside Number 10. We have Boris and the arrival of Dilyn the dog, lots of important people, such as The Queen, coming and going, and Larry's opinion of the other cats nearby. I found this very amusing and liked the gentle fun poking at all the 'important' people. Of course there's a bit of drama too, but I won't spoil the story too much. Interesting use of 'cat' language and bright, amusing pictures which young children will love. I can see that more stories of Larry might be forthcoming, maybe even a cartoon series on tv?

Awesome (some might say paw-some) Larry is Top Cat at Number 10 - that is until his boss, the Prime Minister, gets a dog called Dilyn. If you can even call this ridiculous puppy a dog. For one thing, he chases his own tail, guzzles sausage-strings and chews things to pieces. How paw-thetic! For another, Larry is chief mouser at Number 10, head of paw-trolling and champion window-ledge sitting (note: this is for lookout purposes, NOT catnapping).
Larry is important and the hero of the mouse catching scoreboard. So what possible job can dopey Dilyn do? His whiskers out of joint, Larry tries (and fails) to put Dilyn in the doghouse - but then catastrophe strikes as a cat-burglar breaks in and cat-napps Larry! Can Dilyn rise to the occasion and save the day? And if he does, will Larry give his a-paw-logies?
Based on the real cat and dog team living at Number 10, this charming picture book is a treat to read for any child aged 0 - 5 - and their parents, too!
