Ruth Brown is a cat lover, and her book (based on her own experiences of housing a rescued kitten) is a joy for any feline fans. Brown has captured the essence of moggy-dom perfectly, and she uses her masterful artwork and gentle storytelling to good effect, detailing the life and times of her own beloved Holly (named because she arrived in the Brown household at Christmas).
There are so many kids books devoted to cats, but this is rather special and sentimental.
Charlotte's best bit: Acrobatic Holly
Daddy's favourite bit: The neat Holly / Cat wrapping-paper end paper design of the book.
