LoveReading View on Matilda's Cat

Award-winning Emily Gravett has come up with another witty gem, now published in board book format. Specialising in simplicity and relying on readers taking their cues from her characters, here Matilda’s cat makes it plain that she does NOT like all the things Matilda wants her to. The question is, what does Matilda’s cat like?

Matilda's Cat Synopsis

Climbing trees, playing with wool ...Matilda is sure that all cats love these things, but her kitty doesn't seem very enthusiastic. Undaunted, she thinks up new ways to amuse her reluctant playmate. Tea parties? Dressing up? What about a bike ride? Or perhaps a nice book -- one about dogs? As the cat goes from nonplussed to terrified, Matilda gets more and more frustrated. After all, what use is a pet if it doesn't want to play?

The relationship between Matilda and her cat is sure to strike a chord with any devoted pet owner, while the deceptively simple text and funny illustrations and satisfying, snuggly ending make this story a joy to share with even the youngest children. Perfect for kids with a pet (whether kitten, puppy, rabbit or hamster!), for those who long for one and for cat lovers everywhere. will delight the youngest of readers ...
