About this title


Rich in language, humour and rhyme, this hilarious tale is perfectly complemented by Amanda Montgomery-Higham's witty illustrations. Lizzie and Dominic desperately want a kitten but they get much more than they bargain for! Complete with Audio CD to aid independent reading.

From Publishers Weekly:

Lizzie and Dominic finally succeed in convincing (and nagging) their parents to agree to get a cat. But what kind of cat? Young Dominic seeks a feline comrade-in-arms: "A fat cat, a fierce cat,/ A ferocious, catch-a-rat-cat." Mom pictures a more gem tlichkeit scenario, featuring "a furry cat, a fluffy cat,/ A friendly, sit-on-your-lap cat." The animal shelter, meanwhile, provides little direction, since it's stuffed to the gills with a dizzying array. Of course, it's the tiniest, most pathetic cat of all that eventually wins daughter Lizzie's heart. Yet Cuddles grows into a cat to be feared (and indeed fulfills every parent's pet-related nightmare) when he becomes a havoc-wreaking full-grown king of the jungle (literally). British author and artist Phinn and Montgomery-Higham approach their domestic comedy with distinctly different tones. The illustrator's fluorescent palette, strong, swooping lines and off-kilter perspectives seem to be geared for a merrier verse than these rather mild-mannered rhymes. Still, youngsters will be buoyed along by the slapstick premise and punch line, which proves that once a family pet, always a family pet: a parting scene shows Mom, Dad, Dominic and Lizzie happily snuggling on the sofa with the kitty formerly known as Cuddles now the lion renamed Brian. Ages 4-7.
