Emily Gravett's deceptively simple text, funny illustrations and satisfying, snuggly ending make Matilda's Cat a joy to share with even the youngest children. Purrfect for kids with a pet!

Climbing trees, playing with wool . . . Matilda is sure that all cats love these things, but her kitty doesn't seem very enthusiastic. Undaunted, she thinks up new ways to amuse her reluctant playmate. Tea parties? Dressing up? What about a bike ride? Or perhaps a nice book – one about dogs? As the cat goes from nonplussed to terrified, Matilda gets more and more frustrated. After all, what use is a pet if it doesn't want to play?

Will delight the youngest of readers . . . Gravett can simply do no wrong in this age range.
