Matilda’s cat must like something! But what?
Climbing trees, playing with wool . . . Matilda is sure her cat will love these things, but he doesn’t seem very enthusiastic. Undaunted, she thinks up new ways to amuse her reluctant playmate. Tea parties? Dressing up? Or what about a nice bike ride? As the beleaguered cat goes from nonplussed to terrified, Matilda gets more and more frustrated. After all, what use is a pet if it doesn’t want to play?
An affectionate and funny look at the relationship between a little girl and her cat. Matilda’s Cat is a beautiful picture book with adorable illustrations that are sure to strike a chord with all cat lovers and pet owners.
