Porridge the Tartan Cat and the Bash-Crash-Ding
Also available as: eBook
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!)
'Frequent line illustrations reminiscent of Quentin Blake enrich the story's zippy pace and comedic effect... Readers will enjoy the surprise endings, unusual characters, and absurd humor. [...] these books work wonderfully as silly read alouds.'
-- School Library Journal
'Hysterical [...] There are some brilliant pictures in them too. My 8-year-old loves reading them himself, and they'd be fab to read to a child too.'
-- Library Loves podcast
'This is a fun, nonsensical story... It gets sillier the further you go but it's a fun read.'
-- The Book Faerie, (US blogger)
'... very appealing to second and third graders mastering reading.'
-- Youth Services Book Review
'I liked that this story was very funny and suspenseful... I love how the pictures help tell the story and make it even funnier!'
