I thought it looked like a really lovely book.  We love Julia Donaldson books so we were very excited to read it. The website looks really nice. It seems to have a lot of really lovely books available and at excellent prices. The book is really high quality.  A strong hardback book with a shiny cover.  The pages are also good quality and can withstand my 2 year old flicking through! My 2 year old loves cats so he really wanted us to read the story. The illustrations in the book are wonderful as all Axel Scheffler illustrations are.  My children love looking at the detail of the illustrations as there is always so much to see in them – we even found a Gruffalo in one of them! This book is stimulating for both my children.  They both enjoyed the pictures and rhythm of the story and it also allowed us to talk about buskers – something my eldest didn’t really know about. I liked the book and the illustrations but it’s not my favourite Julia Donaldson book. I would consider buying this book as a gift for other children. A lovely story about a busker’s cat with wonderful illustrations for both children and adults to enjoy. Melanie Burton – Jake & Lucas 4 & 2 Years

Nice sized book with good illustrations to grab the child’s interest. Great website, easy to follow layout and specific age related products can be found without any problem – I actually made a purchase while I was looking!  The registration process and checkout is very simple and straightforward and there are some great savings to be made. The book has a nice feel, good quality and a good size to sit and read with your child. Brody had looked at this book and asked me to buy it for him and just before I did we received it to review (great timing!) so the book clearly inspired him to want to read it – probably down to the illustration on the front. Brody loved the pictures and as he is learning to read at the moment when he couldn’t manage the words, he turned to the pictures to help him try and work out the story. He thoroughly enjoyed the book and read along with me wherever he could. Brody thought the story was so good he took the book to school for his teacher to read to the class. He asks for us to read this story very often at bedtime and doesn’t seem to tire of it. A really lovely story, suitable for bedtime as the content doesn’t have anything that would promote bad dreams.  It holds the child’s attention with great wording and beautiful illustrations. We’ve definitely had our money’s worth out of this – it has been very well read! Overall, a book with a feel good story, well written and age appropriate with lovely illustrations to give visual impact to the child. Toni Adams – Brody 5 Years

First I thought the book was a very suitable size, not too big and not too small. The illustrations were also lovely and very appealing to my Daughter and also the rest of the family. We have read this story a lot of times since receiving it to test and Anne Marie loves it, she always asks to read it! She always interacts very well with the story and asks questions about the book to try and understand which is great! I am very impressed with the quality of the book, it’s very sturdy and I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase from the website, it looks very friendly with great prices too!  Claire Whyte – Anne Marie 4 years
