A boy recounts his memory of the best cat ever, Jack, a cat that isn’t snooty, scratchy or boring. One day Jack dies, it’s very sad and his owner misses him dearly. The idea of another cat is unappealing, no cat can replace Jack. However when he meets a cat who doesn’t behave like Jack but is still not snooty, scratchy and boring he’s ok with the idea of a new cat, he also thinks Jack would like it too.
Brilliant art work by Rebecca Elliot, It great how the illustrations seem to have their own textures as well as incorporating rich colours. A story that is touching and heart-warming. Would recommend if a child is experiencing the same sort of loss and grief. The story is well told and although a tough subject Rebecca Elliot injects some fun with her cat characters and illustrations. The kids absolutely loved this story.
