Review: Mr Pusskins: A Love Story

Devoted Emily adores her crabby little cat Mr Pusskins. She reads him bed-time stories, brushes his fur and generally dotes on him. However, Mr Pusskins feels bored and finds Emily’s attention annoying.

In an attempt to shake things up, he decides to take a walk on the wild side. The curious cat roams the dark streets of the neighbourhood and sure enough runs into trouble, when faced with the dreaded Pesky Cat Gang!

Fortunately, Mr Pusskins stumbles across a telephone and is able to call Emily to rescue him.

Mr Pusskins is a charming and heart-warming story that reminds us to appreciate love, in its many different forms. You don’t have to be a cat lover to enjoy this sweet love story.

Complemented by great illustrations, and sprinkled with plenty of humour, particularly through the illustrations, Mr Pusskins: A Love Story, is sure to bring smiles all round.
