A loving look at what our feline friends really do all day, with
heaps of humour and CATtitude.

"I am a cat, and I have a busy, busy life.
Looking after my family is a full-time job.
They just couldn't do without me!"

The hugely talented Jo Williamson has created a joyful picture book
packed with peek-a-boo boxes, quick cat-naps, stretching on keyboards...
and hating baths!

I read it to SC aged 4 aged 4
Cat in a Box 9781407162126
5 stars
My 4 year old was desperate to get his hands on this book ever since he saw the front cover on the Toppsta site! This is a really sweet book about the busy lives of cats. As we have our very own cat at home my son was delighted to see what she might get up to at home on a daily basis. A really simple story with beautiful illustrations which seems to have captured the imagination of not only my son but various nieces and nephews as well. My son can recite a lot of the story but still keeps asking for it to be read to him again and again. Cat in a Box is a big hit in out house!

I read it to Rubiroo aged 5 aged 5 & to Darcm aged 10 months aged 0

A lovely story book reminding us how our cats look after us and lead very busy days. We are a huge cat loving family so we loved this book and it's illustrations. Beautiful pictures of all different cats and some pages only highlighting colour within in made my oldest daughter really noticed.
We loved it at bedtime as a family.

I read it to Little One aged 3 aged 3 & to Baby aged 9 months aged 0
Cat in a Box 9781407162126
5 stars
This book was just too appealing as the cat really looks like our family cat. Just the other day we caught her napping in a box so this cover couldn't be more true. 
We are big fans of Jo Williamson's work and this read didn't disappoint. My daughter kept gasping whilst I read as she would acknowledge that the feline in this book would do similar things to our family cat. 
The book chronicles the many things that this cat does for the family. From waking its owners up to protecting the house by sitting by the window. Cats lives are so busy. Let's not forget the constant "cleaning" it does and the way it so politely brings "friends" (mice) to come and visit. 
Jo Williamson has written a fun, witty book that many cat owners will be able to relate. 
The illustrations were enjoyed and my daughter spotted the use of a limited palette.
My daughter found this book funny but I do think she appreciated the read more as she has an insight into how cats live.
My daughter enjoyed this witty read and we both look forward to seeing more of Jo Williamson's work.

Such a lovely book! It's all about a cat's daily routine. My son laughed so much at the part when the cat brought home a mouse! The pictures are lovely and colourful! A must read for cat lovers.

I read it myself (an adult) , to Aby aged 7 aged 7 & to Laya aged 2 aged 2
Cat in a Box 9781407162126
5 stars
This is such an amusing story about a black cat who thought he is the important person of his household and act as a VIP all day. He has so much to do from morning to evening from waking up the family members to checking the post. 
It's a hilarious story with fantastic illustrations.  Love the vibrant colours pictures. 
My daughters enjoyed the story very much and singing themselves " there is a cat in the box , we think he is the best "  .
Perfect book for all the cat lovers.

I read it to RowanH aged 2 aged 2
Cat in a Box 9781407162126
4 stars
A nice book about what a cat gets up to in the day. I love the illustrations for this book, bright and quirky. My son was just under 2 when he received this and though he enjoyed it, it didn't fully captivate his attention. I think he will"grow into" this story when a little older. Although this book is called "cat in a box" the book doesn't actually have much on cats in boxes, just a double spread.

I read it to Oscar! aged 1 aged 1
Cat in a Box 9781407162126
4 stars
A lovely story of how a cat fills it's day with all sort of important jobs to keep the household running smoothly.   The book is written in the more traditional story fashion, without the catchy rhyming pages that my children usually use to help remember a story, but a definite must for cat loving families to find out actually how important a cats think they are.

I really enjoyed this book, after coming for a family of cat lovers - I
Loved how it detailed the busy antics of a family cats day to day life.

My 2 year old however was not so fussed. Maybe as he's never had a cat. He did chuckle when the cat bought
Home the mouse. I think we need to buy a kitten

My son seemed a little put off by the style and colour of the illustrations. Our friend has a 2 year old and a cat that looks just like the star of the story so we are going to lend it to them so it can be enjoyed and loved by a cat loving child
