My Cat Called Red Synopsis

My Cat Called Red by Jane Lightbourne

My Cat Called Red Press Reviews

I truly enjoyed My Cat Called Red. It's a tale of grief and loss on the part of both Red and Robin. But it's also a tale of hope and perseverance and of putting one foot in front of the other with trust in a better future...Children make precious and loving connections not only with their grandparents but also with beloved pets and this story brings both to the fore in a genuinely engaging way. Jill Murphy What a wonderful story ! Robin is unable to cope with the death of his Mother but finds solace in the tale of a cat called Red. We follow Red through his adventures to find a home, and what scary adventures they are. It is beautifully written and with perfect drawings and sketches. Well recommended - a joy to read. Maureen Gourlay,
