Six Dinner Sid
Anyone who has ever owned a cat must suspect that at times, their beloved Tiddles or Tiger is known by a series of aliases and probably cadges meals from a number of neighbours. This is the story of Six Dinner Sid, known obviously for his knack of wheedling food out of the various residents of the lane where he lives.
Sid is sneaky and sly, and play-acts his roles for his "owners". Naturally such sneakiness can't go on forever, and Sid gets his comeuppance in a rather amusing way.
Fabulous illustrations by Inga Moore and an amusing twisty cat-tail tale. Fabulous.
Charlotte's best bit: Sid's face when he coughs and sneezes.
Daddy's favourite bit: The fact that Sid is the living embodiment of any cat I've ever owned.
