To start off with I have never read a book like this one before where even the copyright page is entertaining, and yes, I do recommend reading it!
The book is very well written and I love how it is mostly told from the point of view of the cat, Salty Tails.

What a wonderful book I fell in love with Salty and all the characters immeadiately. It is so cute and heart warming. Richard has a great style of writing. You can't help loving his book from the first word.The way you throw in susspense is great. The book keeps you guessing until the very end. All of it with Salty's help.
