Being a bit of a ‘cat collector’ myself, I just had to have this lovely book!
The narrator of the story has no cats, but has a cunning plan- cheese! Mice like cheese and cats like mice so a collection of cats is sure to follow. But twelve cats are not enough and so more cheese and more mice result in more cats. But when the cats get bigger, perhaps it’s safer to collect something else!
Getting carried away with collecting things you love is very easy to do, but the consequences can be disastrous as this humorous story shows! The illustrations are an absolute delight with each moggie and mouse having lots of personality!
The purr-fect book for cats lovers and anyone who enjoys a funny tail- tale!
