Overview

Climbing trees, playing with wool . . . Matilda is sure that all cats love these things, but her kitty doesn't seem very enthusiastic. Undaunted, she thinks up new ways to amuse her reluctant playmate. Tea parties? Dressing up? What about a bike ride? Or perhaps a nice book - one about dogs? As the cat goes from nonplussed to terrified, Matilda gets more and more frustrated. After all, what use is a pet if it doesn't want to play?The relationship between Matilda and her cat is sure to strike a chord with any devoted pet owner, while Emily Gravett's deceptively simple text, funny illustrations and satisfying, snuggly ending make Matilda's Cat a joy to share with even the youngest children.Perfect for kids with a pet (whether kitten, puppy, rabbit or hamster!), for those who long for one and for cat lovers everywhere.
