Book Review by mummy and Daniel
Emily Gravett does it again. Another fabulous book with clever use of the visual. Like many of her other books it is so clever in the use of her beautiful illustrations combined with the way the text complements the story so much that it is integrated into the storyline.
In this book, we find out about Matilda's cat and discover what it is that Matilda's cat does and does not like! (We also love the way it also reminds us about our own cat, as our dear Bella is not too dissimilar from Matilda's cat.)
Emily Gravett's books are amongst my favourites and I will be treasuring them long after the kid's grow out of them. This particular copy will be one our most special family treasures as it is signed by Emily herself when we met her at the British Library's wonderlands festival.
Despite getting this book less than a week ago, it has already been read and re-read over and over.
Daniel's verdict: "loved it!"
Matilda's Cat by Emily Gravett is published by Macmillan Children's Books (2012), priced £10.99 hardback.
