"There are many aspects to this short children's novel which are excellent. Firstly, the style of writing is a perfect balance of 'pace' and 'character development'. In very few words, the author successfully helps the reader to understand Walter (and his cat) and, as a result, the reader starts to care for them and what will happen to them. The author also seems to work particularly well with speech and characters.
"With short chapters and a sprinkling of well-drawn illustrations, I would happily recommend this book to any 7 to 10 year-olds."
