Who'll want to read it? Cat lovers - grown ups and children.
Point of no return: The expressions on the faces of the cats on the front cover drew me in.
Classic line: "MEEE-EW and the old guitar, How PURRRR-fectly happy we are."
What's it all about? It's about the adventures of Tabby McTat - a busker's cat - including loneliness, marriage, fatherhood and working out your true direction in life. The illustrations are perfect and it is a wonderful wonderful story. And I'm not even a cat person.
