Wow Lucy, you don't waste much time, you have only had the book a couple of days. What a lovely thing to write, thank you so much. This is my very first review from a real person (someone outside the book trade I mean), so hurrah, and glad you enjoyed it.

White Chin: the cat that walked by his wild lone

You either love cats or loathe them, but millions of feline fans will indulge themselves in this tale of White Chin, abandoned by his callous owners in a wood.

Forced to fend for himself, he survives until a farmer’s daughter, who witnessed the abandonment, finally finds him and encourages him back to family life.

Edwards, author of the Moon Cottage Cats series, has a genuine feel for the countryside and for the interaction between humans and animals, lending this gentle tale of trust and loyalty a sensitive and uplifting emotional core.

Aimed at younger readers, it will find plenty of adults reading it under the duvet.

White Chin: the cat that walked by his wild lone

Closely observed and very moving, complemented perfectly by fine detailed illustrations.
Michael Foreman

A terrific animal adventure and an incredibly heart-warming story.

This isn't just another animal story: it's a slice of life and the illustrations are an absolute triumph.
Jane Badger

A sensitively wrought and compelling story that takes you inside the mind of a feline. Edwards has captured a voice that young adults will love.
Karin Slaughter

The Cats of Moon Cottage

A vivid, honest and observant book about a life with cats, told with charm and wit.
Desmond Morris

Cat lovers will adore this book. I know I did. A tender story of love between the author and her cats.
Celia Haddon

More Cat Tales from Moon Cottage

A colourful chronicle that celebrates the many ways animals enrich our relationships and our lives. It's catnip for anyone who has ever loved a feline.
Karin Slaughter

The Cats on Hutton Roof

I admire this book even more than its predecessors. I don't think it's exaggerating to say that in some ways it stands comparison with Tarka the Otter. The tone of voice is different, and so is the pace, but the observation and the empathy are of similar quality.

And these, I believe, are the most important things in attempts to interpret the animal world to the rest of us.

The Coach House Cats

A fascinating account of the intertwined lives of four cats. A touching book, intelligently observed.
