The Bookshop Cat

The bookshop is a place full of stories, adventures and of course, the bookshop cat.

In a small town, a black cat struggles to find his dream job. No matter what jobs his family puts on offer, his only desire is to read. 

After seeing a bookshop in need of help and meeting a boisterous girl called Violet, the black cat seems to know what he wanted to do. 

He wanted to be a bookshop cat. 

Yet, when a disastrous event occurs, the bookshop is deserted, and no one wants to come in. 

Will the bookshop be able to sell books and be loved again?

Read the book to find out!

I enjoyed reading this book even though I do not enjoy reading picture books as much as I did when I was younger. Even so Cindy Wume has formulated an awesome story that I really enjoyed. The illustrations were also drawn in the style similar to a graphic novel which I loved as I enjoy reading graphic novels as well. I would recommend this book to anyone, any age.
