Review

Praise for Tabby McTat, The Musical CatA surprising and fun read.... [Scheffler's] bright-eyed, warmhearted characterizations make this a wonderful testimony to the ties that bind. -- Publishers WeeklyThe team behind Room on the Broom pair up again in what has become a near-annual ritual of picture book perfection.... Impeccable rhythm and rhyme distinguish this particular tale, filled, as always, with Donaldson's exemplary humor and heart. -- New York TimesA fun frolic about musical duos who aren't quite the same without each other. Like their trademark tune, it all ends 'PURRRR-fectly'. -- Booklist

4.0 out of 5 stars An unexpected twist in the tale, as ‘Tabby McTat, the busker’s cat’ moves on in more ways than one!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 February 2022
🐾There is a lot going on in this rhyming story, which is a tad challenging in places for the narrator(!) and can split the pack in terms of sensitivity...but all is well at the end!
The current stock images above give an idea of the content.

ooOoo

Measuring roughly 22.5 cm x 28 cm, the attractive card cover is enhanced by a shiny effect to the 2 felines and gold foil for the titling + author/illustrator ~ the dynamic duo that brought us 'The Gruffalo', as per the sticker on the front.

Inside are 32 shiny finish pages, the story starting straight after the inside cover page, running over colourfully illustrated, double-page spreads with lots to talk about including meaningful facial expressions.

The story carries repeat elements, including the little busking song that is also on the back cover:

🎵 ‘..."Me, you and the old guitar,
How perfectly, perfectly happy we are.
MEEE-EW and the old guitar.
How PURRRR-fectly happy we are!"...' 🐾

Said song is slightly modified towards the back and there is a that aforementioned unexpected twist in the tale at the end.
