It’s rubbish day and Sonny is a greedy, sneaky cat who loves getting into rubbish bins. Even though he has a nice home, kind owners and only the best quality cat food, Sonny still enjoys rummaging around in the neighbourhood’s rubbish looking for things to eat. One night, just before dawn, Sonny lies in wait, ready to pounce on the first bin to come out. When one does, it’s full of stuff. And it's not only food. After making an awful mess, the naughty cat finds what he’s looking for and what a feast it is! The problem is the rubbish truck has come early and now Sonny, so stuffed full of food that he fell asleep inside the bin, is in big trouble . . .

    This is a lovely story about an independent street cat. The rhymes are always spot on, not forced or hard to read aloud. Loved by a visiting granddaughter and a re-read requested several times, so definitely a win there. Some proofreading issues but a great character to spend some time with.

    The Rubbish Bin Cat is an enchanting book. My grandchildren and I have loved reading it together. Its use of rhyme is excellent and makes it a real pleasure to read. This book is a must-have!
