Matilda's Cat

If you like cats, you will adore this funny picture book about a little girl and her fussy pet. Emily Gravett has won all the top prizes for picture book artwork, and her ace pictures here are purr-fectly gorgeous. Matilda’s grumpy cat is allergic to fun. Climbing trees, playing with wool… he’s just not interested. So Matilda tries some new ideas. Tea parties? Dressing up? Or what about a nice bike ride? After all, what use is a pet if it doesn’t want to play? You’ll laugh aloud at the witty pictures, which show you all the funny faces that Matilda’s baffled cat makes.
