LoveReading View on The Cat Who Wanted to Go Home

Suzy the little striped cat is always curious; so curious that she often gets into all kinds of trouble. And that is exactly what happens when she climbs into a hot air balloon and finds herself swept up in the air and across the sea. Will Suzy ever get back to her own home? An exciting story for beginner readers. ~ Julia Eccleshare

The Cat Who Wanted to Go Home Synopsis

Suzy is a little striped cat, who lives in a French seaside village with a fisherman and his four sons. Like all cats, Suzy is very inquisitive, which causes problems when she climbs into the basket of a hot air balloon - and is carried off over the channel to England! How will she ever get back to France? It won't be easy, but Suzy refuses to be put off by a bit of water...Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades.

This picture book edition is stunningly illustrated by Paul Howard and comes complete with audio book CD - voiced by Maureen Lipman. All this makes The Cat Who Wanted To Go Home an even more enjoyable story for young readers.
