One of The Independent's 50 books every child should read...The Tygrine Cat (and The Tygrine Cat on the Run) by Inbali Iserles... If your parents keep going on at you to read Tarka the Otter, The Sheep-Pig and other animal fantasies, do they're great books also try Iserles' stories about a cat seeking his destiny. --Katy Guest, The Independent on Sunday

This is an AMAZING book for both children and adults alike. Mati is a very endearing character and by the end of the book you really feel part of his journey. I hope Inbali Iserles writes a sequel as I can't wait to see what happens next!!!

This is a delightful, and delightfully written story, about a little cat who gets caught up in various adventures, and events far bigger than he could have dreamed. It's very well written, very enjoyable, and well paced. There is a cracking story, but also some real depth and emotion to it. I gave my 10-year old niece a copy, and she absolutely loved it.

I really enjoyed The Tygrine Cat: it is beautifully written. Mati - initially inexperienced and fallible - makes a sympathetic and convincing hero. The fast, exciting pace never flags. The scene-setting descriptions of weather, nature and the seasons, into which the cats' world is inextricably woven - and of Fiåney: the 'dream-wake' - are exquisite. The contrast between modern, chaotic, commercialism and ancient, mystical menace which exist side by side is also well handled. I found the climax gripping and cleverly dealt with, and the bittersweet ending touching. I can wholeheartedly recommend The Tygrine Cat to older children and adults alike. I understand that the novel has been nominated for an award, and deservedly so.

I stumbled across this fantastic book by chance and couldn't put it down. The Tygrine Cat is a compelling and vivid adventure story that grapples with a range of personal, political and spiritual issues, suitable for girls and boys. I wouldn't be surprised if it gets adapted to animation film. Long live, Mati!

I decided to buy this book for a friend's daughter who is cat mad, but- having read it - would strongly recomend it for anyone. Its a really exciting adventure full of mystery and is highly original ... one of those books that, once you start reading them, is impossible to put down. Just brilliant!

The "Tygrine Cat" kept me in its grip from the very first page. The story telling is masterful and the author managed to really put herself into the mind of a cat. You cannot help but continue reading as the mystery of Mati's destiny unfolds in the course of the book. I cannot wait for a sequel!

It was good at the start, but then it got WAY too weird, leading to a cat transporting himself to a spirit world where if he is killed by a monster-devil-cat , all the world's cats die.

Confused? That's how I felt when I finished this book. I don't even know why it was put on a UK newspaper's 'books every child should read' list.
