Very young children will love joining in with this fun rhyming story that is also just right for beginner readers. The lively illustrations by Hairy Maclary creator Lynley Dodd are sure to appeal to cat lovers of all ages.

Do your children like joining in the words? This story is great for that! With simple repetition, this hugely funny book invites children of all ages to join in! Plus, I'm a massive fan of cat humour so it's a winner for grown ups too!!

This was a favourite book for me as a child and I was thrilled to find the original copy at my parents' house this weekend and read it to my youngest at bedtime. She loved it! 
She loved the pictures and descriptions of different cats doing different 'silly' things. She enjoyed repeating the line on every other page.
I know that she will ask for it every time tha we visit from now on!

I love this book and remember reading it when I was younger. It's really silly and has some great rhymes in it; I could remember most of it when reading it to my children! The illustrations are still charming and, as a cat owner, I can certainly relate to the main character's frustration that their cat likes to 'hide in boxes!

A short rhyming story with quirky illustrations- a definite for cat lovers. My little girl loves the pictures and can remember all the rhymes from the starting phrase.
