I read this aloud with my child, and we laughed out loud at Old Tom and his antics. What a funny story, and as cat lovers it was great to see someone appreciate Cats for who and what they are!

okay. i think it was so great. i read it in a very short time because, well, it's short. HAHA! LOVE IT! AND I READ IT IN THE BOOKSTORE!
Leigh draws like Quentin Blake. I really love Old Tom's dead fish-teddy. It's always kept close. Wonder how rank it smells.
We all need someone, and need to be needed. It's universal. It even applies to an old tom.
Lovely book for kids. I really liked Tom even though he was a real nuisance at some points.
Old Tom was enjoyable and funny. The drawings were amusing.
