About the Author:

Leigh Hobbs, the author of more than 20 books, including Mr Chicken Goes to Paris and Horrible Harriet, is the 2016-2017 Australian Children's Laureate.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Angela Throgmorton is tired of caring for her snarly, sassy orange cat so she leaves him home when she wins a luxury holiday trip. However, as the woman unpacks her bags at the hotel, Old Tom reveals himself to readers as a secret suitcase stowaway. She remains unaware of his presence as he appears in the background of each scene, hiding in bushes while she photographs crocodiles from a canoe or sitting several seats behind her on a double-decker bus. She misses her pet, and paintings in museums, geographic terrain, and even the full moon remind her of him. As she sits on her bed wiping away tears of loneliness, Tom, hanging in a chandelier overhead, falls into her lap and they spend the rest of the vacation together. The uncomplicated text plays straight man to the wacky artwork. There is a quirky childlike quality to the mixed-media cartoons and the characters have angular, exaggerated features. Angela is depicted as a dowdy woman with a peculiar, gray hairstyle. Tom is a rather crude feline whose right eye is a dark spiral and who always carries a fish skeleton. The humor in this book is sure to appeal to children, especially Harry Allard's fans.–Shawn Brommer, South Central Library System, Madison, WI
