Review

This picture book takes a dilema children often face - the best name for a new pet - and takes it into very different directions. The pet in question is a very clever kitty who arrives on a young girl's doorstep one day, looking hungry, and she takes it in, delighted to have a new pet. There's just one question - what to call it. The cat happily tries out 'Princess High and Mighty' - only she turns out to be a 'he' - as well as Rambo, Butch and Mr Maestro but then disappears in a huff when the little girl gets it wrong. Luckily, she makes a new friend, Steve (a gorilla) - but the clever little cat has other ideas... This is a lovely story to read aloud with plenty of clever twists and humour, and starring a cat with bags of attitude (we know who is really in charge in this household!). Children can be encouraged to share their own stories about their pets and names they have chosen for them, and also to discuss what makes their pet special. Picture book / Ages 4+ / Reviewed by Jane Allen.
