it was amazing
bookshelves: children-s-book, five-star, humour
Read from January 01, 2001 to February 07, 2012

I think I liked this more than my kids, but we all seemed to enjoy it. My ten year old son especially like the page with the different interpretations of one sentence about treading on furballs and breaking legs (you have to read it to get it).

I think if you have a cat, know a cat, loathe or love cats you would appreciate this book.

Quite a few pages resulted in short discussions of what the author was talking about ... eg earth hounds = dogs, as well as the subtle references/outcomes ... eg the fishbowl is falling off the top shelf and what is the likely outcome ... good for trying to get autistic son to think about the story (though some of it went over his head).
