    I absolutely loved this book. It was sad when Johnny was called a stowaway, so that wasn’t good. I am officially crazy about the Titanic, which is why I have read basically all the books about the Titanic. Especially this one. It’s so good. I think it should be a national requirement to read it. It is phenomenal.

    Kaspar reminds me of my cat: cute, a little zany, and just plain spoiled. * * * * + 1/2

    From how much i read of this book, I thought it was really good, but i didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought it would. Maybe it’s because its about animals, or maybe because it’s set in a different time period, but i was dissappointed with parts, and wouldn’t read it again.

    this book is reall good. when i read it i read it through my favorite TV show and thats almost impossible.

    and when i read it a couple of months later i could tell my dad in great detail what it was about. in the most description.

    this cat looks like my cat izzie and i want to read it and my brother charlie would like to read it as well.

    on 27 March 2010

    it was really interesting from start to finish. i love cats so it was just the book for me. kaspar is such an amazing cat, he survived the titanic and went to loads of places. there where a few sad bits but it all ended kind of sad and happy. it kind of ended in a confusing way but i know how it ended and thats what maters.i think Michael Morpurgo is a really good auther and i racomend this book to ages of 7 and over because it had a few hard words in it and it has 208 pages. even my friend bought it, after i bought it into school and read it.

    I think that this book is great. It is a book of mixed emotions. When bell boy travels with a girl and her parents on the Titanic disaster strikes and the boat begins to sink. Join the boy on his adventure with a cat witch is his responsibility. I would give this book 5 star, and recommend it to any Michael Morpurgo fan!!
