The Cat Mummy

Written by Jacqueline Wilson

Illustrated by Nick Sharratt

The Cat Mummy Synopsis

Verity adores her cat, Mabel, and is desperately sad when she dies. Remembering her recent school lessons about the Ancient Egyptians, Verity decides to mummify Mabel and keep her hidden. Verity's dad and grandparents can't bear to talk about death, having lost Verity's mum several years ago - but when they eventually discover what Verity has done, the whole family realises it's time to talk. A superb handling of bereavement in Jacqueline Wilson's uniquely accessible and enjoyable style, for younger readers.

As always, Wilson hits every button * Express on Sunday * The loss of a loved one is dealt with lightly and gently * Financial Times * A touching and sad situation that is dealt with with a light touch that never trivialises the emotions portrayed * The Bookseller *
