Mrs Weber's Diary takes me back to my Guardian reading days and I've retained a fondness for Posy Simmonds' style. It works just as well it seems in a picture book for children, a tale of modern slavery in the form of cat who does all the work at the bakery and the mice who take pity on him.

I bought this for my daughter (a 35-year-old cat lover!) but couldn't resist reading it for myself before I gave it her!

It is a delightful book, beautifully illustrated about the baker's cat who has a difficult time until helped out by his mice friends. Charming!

Cute British book about a cat who does all the work for the lazy baker and his wife but doesn't get fed much until he catches some mice. So the mice decide to help him and eventually he gets his own bakery.

Avec cet album, Posy Simmonds nous montre une fois encore qu'elle a une affection toute particulière pour les chats (et comme je la comprends ...) ! :)
