Product Description

From the Publisher

Although this tale is aimed at children aged 9 to 12, many adults are enjoying this magical fantasy adventure too. Available in paperback only, and with 160 pages in total, this story is an ideal, one-chapter-a-night, bedtime read. Parents can even read this book to a slightly younger age group and the story will not be lost, because Wolfren Riverstick is a visually descriptive writer.

From the Author

As yet, I have not heard a bad word said about this book. It has been read by people of all ages who come from all over the world, and both children and adults have loved the story so much that they have set it aside for a once-a-year read! If you really want to be taken away to a world far removed from the one in which we live, then please get hold of a copy of "A Cat Called Ian" and lose yourself in my world.

Written by Emma, aged 7 … I think this is a really nice book. I would recommend it to everybody that loves cats. It's a very nice story about a selfish boy called Thomas and he turns into a cat and learns his lesson - not to be mean! It's quite a long book, but I really enjoyed it.

Wolfren Riverstick is a master storyteller, adept at inspiring and entertaining children. In this new edition of A Cat Called Ian, he has taken an already superb story and refined it, removing some of the grammatical glitches and clichés that detracted from its quality in the first edition.
As a story to read aloud to children at bedtime, or as a book to entrance those already able to read fluently, this is a superb book to help them develop an interest in reading, whist making every fibre tingle with the exciting possibilities it unfolds. The magic of his ideas will appeal to all children, and many adults too, stimulating their imagination and creativity.
Read at another level, this book makes an interesting parody of adult life, with all the meanness, greed and lust for power that adults employ with casual ease being exposed through the subtle medium of a society of magical cats. It could almost be used as an allegorical textbook for sociology students.
Despite having edited and revised his manuscript, the author has still retained his own unique and authentic voice. This is part of what gives his writing its charm, and makes it so accessible to children. I don’t know why a major publisher hasn’t picked him up and commissioned more stories of this calibre. This new edition definitely makes A Cat Called Ian a five star book which should be widely read in all primary schools and homes.

Wolfren Riverstick originally wrote this book with 9-12 year olds in mind, but having read it myself (and I'm the wrong side of 50!) I can highly recommend it to one and all, male or female.

A Cat Called Ian is about an obnoxious 10 year old boy and his (mis)adventures as he gradually learns to value life and those he loves. This all comes about by his falling from an old oak tree on the brow on Sunrise Hill (having been attacked by squirrels) and finding himself in Catland. Not only that, but he IS a cat and, worse, has been given the proverbial nine lives by the Catmaster. These are quickly lost as he refuses to accept the error of his ways until he has just one left and is sent away (still in cat form) to confront his attitude problems. Failure to do this will result in him being a cat forever...

A brilliant first book by this author, well thought out and with lots of twists and turns that are obvious afterwards but somehow you just don't see them coming!

I highly recommend this book - not only as a thoroughly enjoyable read, but also as an analogy of the laws of life. Having read it, I closed the book and thought what a good read it was, but then for days afterwards I found myself thinking about how cleverly it had been written - it can be taken at face value or at a much deeper level... you really must read it to see what I mean!
