3.0 out of 5 stars Counting the cost of a night on the tiles, 5 May 2007
By 
This review is from: Mr Pusskins (Hardcover)
She lavishes love and kindness on him, but he feels bored and suffocated and longs to live the life of an alley cat, eventually walking out on her. Will she take him back? The 'she' in this case is Emily (why-oh-why can't these authors pick some other name?) and 'he' is Mr Pusskins, as spoilt and rotund an old tom as one is ever likely to meet.

This prodigal son fable is invitingly illustrated, the cuddly Mr Pusskins drawing the reader in to understand his selfishness and the pickle it lands him in. There is also some lovely visual humour; the images of him literally crawling the walls inside the front cover are bound to raise a smile. The text is simple and nicely paced, offering ample opportunity to explore the many themes: being spoilt, the grass appearing greener on the other side, not knowing what you've got 'til it's gone and the value of companionship.

I really like this book which deftly wraps some important lessons in a cute story. However it hasn't turned out to be a huge hit with Alice (4) and Louise (2) in the same way as for instance "Penguin" by Polly Dunbar, hence only three stars.
