In this sequel to the much-loved A Cat Called Dog, we re-join the gang—George, Eric, Francois, Miss Fifi and, of course, Dog himself—as they embark on a quest to find the mother of three lost kittens. Daisy, Maisie and Boo last saw their mother when they escaped from a cat-catcher, and now they have no idea where she is.Enter George, who appoints Dog as leader of the expedition to reunite them. On the way, they encounter a seemingly helpful Siamese cat Hettie who offers to show them the way, as well as two celebrity TV star cats—Christopher and Doris. They also have to survive great dangers, including killer slugs and dinosaurs! Will the cats be able to find the kittens' mother? And will Dog realise that there is a traitor in their midst before it's too late? A Cat Called Dog 2: The One with the Kittens is a great fun book, suitable for children and cat lovers of all ages.

A modern classic - a must-read for cat lovers of all ages (children and adults).

A brilliant and funny cat book - for children of all aged (up until 107 probably!). Like a Disney or Pixar movie, there is stuff for both kids and adults in here - and it works on both levels. You cannot help but smile at this beautifully written book - which is also really clever. The cats talk, yes, but you never forget they're cats with their own cat ways and a cat view of the world and what a cat life is about. Dog continues to learn how to be a noble cat, being given the responsibility from old George to lead a party to help 3 kittens Daisy, Maisie and Book (SO SWEET MOG) to find their mother. Their quest is scary, exciting, sometimes nail-bitingly tense as any thriller, especially with a traitor amongst them, until they eventually reach their goal. They get help from 2 Hollywood cats who have escaped from a film studio (where the cats later enter the LAND OF THE DINOSAURS!), Doris the diva and Christopher the Dancing Cat. The accents and attitudes of cat celebrities are so spot-on! You can read this without first reading the first illustrated child-friendly A CAT CALLED DOG from 2015 - or the original, longer, unillustrated A CAT CALLED DOG from 2013 (red cover). My favourite cat books ever - and thankfully free of the schmaltzy, overly sentimental approach of SO many cat stories, with cringe-worthy re-incarnation or angel plots, and unconvincing first-person cat narrators. These A CAT CALLED DOG books would be more widely know if there were any justice in the world. It's a modern classic! I just hope it become a movie or a TV cartoon series or maybe even a newspaper comic strip, because it really is laugh-out-loud funny as well as heart-warming, with some brilliant characters - George, Dog and my favourite, Eric the Cockney stray.
