About the book: This is a delightful adventure story full of new lands, a sassy Queen, delicious feasts, untold treasures, greedy merchants and, of course, a shipful of cats! In this longer illustrated fiction, cat lover Captain Cat has a ship load of feline friends, in fact there are more cats than sailors, and they are great rat catchers. On his voyage he arrives at a remote and lonely island where the queen, a little girl, has never seen a cat. Perhaps Captain Cat will leave her cats behind to help rid her island of a rat infestation? This a lovely, warm story about friendship and family.
Reasons for selection: This simple story is told in a relaxed, chatty tone and younger readers will find the story easy to understand, whilst some of the vocabulary will challenge and extend them. The illustrations are traditional, with a dreamy, romantic quality and offer the chance for readers to explore characterisation at a deeper level.
