Book Review

I had some homework to do this past week. A couple of weeks ago, the lovely people at Allen and Unwin publishers contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in reading a new book about a kitty. I said I would be very keen so this book arrived in the mail last week.
It's the story about a cat called Cleo who adopted a family in New Zealand, weeks after the oldest son was killed in a car accident when he was just nine years old. You can click here to read more about the story.

I had mum read this to me over last weekend and we finished it in less than two days! It was very good and we laughed and cried over the story of Cleo. Mum says she thinks I might have been like her when I was a kitten.

It was a very good book and when it gets released this month you should all try and read it! My mum has given our copy to her sister to read. I hope she likes it as much as we did.

That sounds like a very good book. And a true story.

That book sounds very interesting.

Sounds like a wonderful story! Even though we might not have suffered such a loss, the story of an animal's love and help in overcoming a traumatic event has universal appeal in these difficult times.
How do we get the book? Thanks, Huffle. You are a dear.

It sounds like a great story that we'd like to hear more about. Wonder if it will have a widespread U.S. release too? The Mommy isn't even seeing it listed on Amazon. :(

Thanks for the heads-up though, we'll keep an eye out for it!

Purrs and hugs,

Books are nice and stuff...but don't forget about the parsely pot!

I can hardly believe a cat would help a family heal. I mean, no offense Huffle, but our experience (Wilbur) indicates that cats are not very nice. Perhaps only cats that are Honorary Siberians are good for healing.
