3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars for this follow up 28 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is the follow up to King Of The Vagabonds and follows Sammy & Pinkie as their lives as vagabond cats continues.
Now established as King Cat, Sammy & his mate Pinkie find that they are now alone on the wasteground with winter closing in and food hard to find. In their search they become trapped in a vehicle and find themselves whisked off into the heart of the city of London. Already struggling to adapt to their new life in the park,things take a turn for the worse when they become separated. How will Pinkie, now an expectant mother cope with life on her own and will the mysterious toby prove a help or hindrance? Can Sammy find his way back to his beloved Pinkie and will he get the reception he hopes for or have circumstances changed in his absence?
I have to say that this book is a notch or two down from the excellent prequel King Of The Vagabonds. Sammy is no longer the likeable character from the first novel, he's now a much more conceited creature and therefore it's a little more difficult to engage with the story and root for him in the same way. It's stange in a Dann novel not to have the hero of our story (Sammy) as a likeable character, perhaps Dann has done this intentionally to illustate the fact that Sammy is no longer a domestic cat and therefore rougher around the edges but the best Dann characters have that blend of toughness and vulnerability and that is lacking here. The story is not as engaging as before either, we flit between Sammy attempts to return to his mate and his trials and tribulations along the way to Pinkie's struggles as a lone parent. We encounter a few other characters along the way but no one to really brighten the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for cat lovers! 8 Jan 2003
By Hazel M
Format:Paperback
I would definitely recommend this book to any age, even though it's classed as a children's book. I am 16 and found it extremely enjoyable to read.
Colin Dann allows you to almost become the cats in the book. He takes you through their rough winter in the city and allows you to feel that you are a wild cat in their situation. You become the cats that are weary of humans and risk their lives crossing the busy London roads, and you are taken through each of the cats' individual experiences and challenges.
If you love cats, you have to read this! Even if you're not too keen on cats, I still think that you'll enjoy it.
