Product description

From the author of the best-selling LOST IN THE SNOW

Alfie has always loved playing in the overgrown garden next door. It is here he plays with Penguin, an enormous black-and-white cat, a stray who Alfie has claimed as his own. But when his next door neighbour’s granddaughter, Grace, comes to live with her, she decides Penguin belongs to her! Alfie knows he can’t force Penguin to be with him, but he wishes the cat didn’t want to spend time with Grace either. What neither of them realizes is that while they thought Penguin was with the other one, he has actually disappeared…

    I liked the part when Alfie and Grace had to look for Punguin and became friends.

    I like the characters’ personalities and it also shows that animals understand your feelings but sometimes animals mistake your intentions. The boy has a tree, but this is in his elderly neighbour’s garden and it is difficult for him to get to it. He goes through brambles and nettles and under the loose floorboard behind the shed to get to the tree which is his retreat when his mom shouts at him and he always takes his cat with him. The elderly neighbour has her daughter and granddaughter to live with her and the granddaughter claims the tree and the cat as hers, which makes them enemies from the start. The boy and the granddaughter eventually make friends but the cat disappears and the two children search together for the boy’s cat. Read on to find out more. Do you think that they stayed friends? Did they find the cat? Did they have adventures together?

    At first I was not too keen on this book, but when I read on I really enjoyed it and it teaches that you should share.

    I think that this book would suit six to eight year olds
