‘youngsters will enjoy the idea of a cat facing an identity crisis, with echoes of the familiar story of sibling rivalry between toddlers and new babies. Illustrations, in pen, ink, watercolour and pastel, show a big-eyed ginger and white cat whose expressions evoke both sympathy and smiles. Very cute.’
This is the true story of how I was named after the family cat.
It is, however, told from the cat’s perspective, and he’s a bit miffed that a stupid little baby has basically committed identity theft against him.
Here’s the blurb:
Sam lives very happily in a tumbledown house with Jane and Ian. But when Jane and Ian bring home a baby boy, not only does the baby get all the attention – he even steals Sam’s name!
