The Book That Made Me: David Almond 20/03/19
Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books
Cats’ favourite thing in the world is fish. So when Alfonso the cat overhears a two old men discussing the imminent arrival of a boat carrying its largest ever catch, he hatches a plan. It’s brave! It’s bold! And it involves a ghost pirate ship, some rather gullible fishermen, and cats … LOTS of cats.
The rhyming text makes Cats Ahoy! perfect for reading out loud and sharing, and adults will enjoy this as much as children. The subtle details in Jim Field’s stunning illustrations add to the humour of the story, and depict every type of cat possible. This book is very funny – fishtastic in fact!
