Book Description

20 July 2007
The pampered family cat is upset and confused! He simply can t understand what this new creature is that's arrived in the house. It has sharp teeth, sleeps all day, screams all night, throws its food about and is very smelly! He begins to imagine the terrible possibilities, which every parent and sibling will understand. However, it doesn't take long for the cat to realise that "... I love the Scummage and the Scummage loves me. It's not monstrous at all, it's a sweet little baby!" The Scummage is charmingly narrated in rhyme by the voice of the cat and is filled with beautifully detailed illustrations.
