Book Review: My 8-year-old is a ferocious reader. She saw this book in the library, said she'd heard about the author so took the book out. It is a great little book for her to devour.
The story follows Helena who finds a cat on the road “so cold and lifeless” that she “hadn’t thought he could still be alive.” Luckily her cousin Lucy who works at a vet is with her so they take him there. The story then tells the relationship between the girl Helena and the cat through his recovery.
The way the story is written is clever in that it gives the two way perspective so you can read about the feelings of the cat as well as the girl.
My daughter enjoyed this very much and is likely to read other books in the series now.
