Interest Age 5-8 Former Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo has a gift for telling stories about animals and how they touch the lives of children. Snug is Lisa’s cat and always has been as he arrived at the house just before Lisa is born. But Snug is also his own creature and he cannot be prevented from living his own life by the family. The story of Snug is a roller coaster of emotion with a delightfully happy ending.
Particularly suitable for 5-8s with a reading age of 6.
Michael Morpurgo adapted Snug especially for the Little Gems series from his first collections of stories to be published called It Never Rained. Have a look at his other Little Gem title The Castle in the Field.
