Paris Cat is crammed with joie de vivre!
Buy Paris Cat
This is cheating a little as this stylish book is to be published on 9th July but I was lucky enough to receive an early free review copy from Tiny Owl Publishers. A book to lift the spirits, this is charming, entertaining and full of fun. From the wonderful endpapers where we are treated to a cat’s eye view of Paris to the biographies of Edith Piaf and Josephine Baker at the end of the story this is a picturebook with a difference. Paris Cat is no fluffy, docile pet cat, this is a cat with attitude, frankly rather like several cats of my acquaintance. Cat believes she is different to the alley cats, she knows she can do anything she sets her mind to so leaving her family behind she sets off to Paris to find her destiny. But perhaps living the high life is not what she really wants and Cat learns some life lessons during her adventures. Text and illustrations combine beautifully in this story crammed with joie de vivre. I enjoyed the clever touches such as the fish bone feathers and cigarette holder and the slinky style of the cats closely resembling the nightclub dancers. This is also a wonderful way of introducing children to well known historical figures with just enough information provided in the biographical details to encourage readers to investigate further. An enjoyable and happy story.
