Book Description

13 Oct 2011
It was the brazen cheek of the huge rat running across the front of No 10 on a live TV news broadcast that galvanised the government into action. Meetings were held at the highest level and, barely a week later, on 15 February 2011, Larry the tabby cat arrived in Downing Street to make his mark as the new rodent bouncer in residence. A secret source quickly made contact and has been working closely with Larry ever since to get the full story - in diary form - of his first 100 days in the job. In a swift-moving satirical narrative that pits Larry against the evil King Rat and his legion of cheese-eaters, our hero still finds time to spill the beans on what life with Sam and Dave is really like. With the economy in crisis and the gutter press up to no good , Larry has to use all his smarts to outwit his foes and earn his keep. From his privileged position in Sam Cam's lingerie drawer, and an eye on the revolving door of visiting dignitaries, Larry is able to take a wry look at the machinations of coalition power that lurk behind the big black door.

I loved reading this book. It bounced along and I fell for the loveable 'rough round the edges' Larry the cat. Its a great story about an alley cat that hits gold when he is moved into No 10 Downing St, but it come with a price as he is tasked with ridding the house of rats. It's also an interesting insight into the life behind the doors of no 10, the author cleverly gets into the minds of 'Dave' and 'Sam' - with amusing, true to life anedotes of the Prime Minister, his wife and British party politics. I went straight out and bought a copy for my mum and my aunty. Its a must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - buy immediately 7 Dec 2011
Loved this book. Larry provides us with an insightful cat's eye view of the Coalition government and life with DC, Sam Cam and Boy George, somehow managing to see the humorous side. Engaging, smart - and occasionally smart-arsed - Larry's attention to detail is brilliant as he observes the comings and goings at number 10. You can't help wondering how he comes up with this stuff, and about the writer's source on the inside. Full of laughs but you learn a lot too. You'll whizz through it and still want more. Bring on the sequel!
