Porridge the Tartan Cat and the Bash-Crash-Ding
Also available as: Paperback
Cat + tartan paint = ME! I'm Porridge, the world's ONLY tartan cat. ME-OW! I'm always ready to lend a paw when the McFun family (my humans) get into trouble which is all the time. ME-SIGH.
Groovy Gran's band want to play a concert but EVERYthing's going wrong and EVERYone's blaming me!
Join me on my balloon-riding, wool-chasing, dug-dodging quest to prove them wrong and ROCK THEIR SOCKS OFF! (ME-WOW)
But watch out for the Dug o Doom he's on my tail! (ME-OWCH!)
'This is a fun, nonsensical story about a cat that has fur colored like tartan. [...] It gets sillier the further you go but it's a fun read. All's well that ends well. Come have some fun at the concert!'
-- The Book Faerie, (US blogger)
'There are not only a lot of illustrations but large descriptive words such as CRACK! Mewhoa and THUMP! that break up the words on the page making this very appealing to second and third graders mastering reading.'
-- Youth Services Book Review
'I liked that this story was very funny and suspenseful. My favorite part was when Porridge was chased by the Dog of Doom and he tried to run through a cat door but ran into a wall instead! I love how the pictures help tell the story and make it even funnier!'
