“This is a truly delightful read. If you love cats, or history, or both, this is the book for you. It’s fun, experimental and glorious… The story navigates itself so brilliantly to keep you engaged along the way. Packed with action, dramatic tension, and one not-so scaredy cat, this has it all.’

I loved it and cannot wait for the next instalment!’
– Maddy, Merseyside

‘A terrific light-hearted read… The colourful illustrations are so beautiful and unique that they speak volumes in themselves… can be enjoyed by older children (teens) and adults alike. I thought it was tremendously unusual, eccentric, weird and wonderful.’

This is a wonderful read for anyone aged 9 to 90. Think Harry Potter meets Horrible Histories… I’m in my 50’s and enjoyed it immensely. I fell in love with Thunderpaws and can’t wait for his next adventures. The cat mannerisms are hilarious and very true to life. The book is a piece of art and beautiful to hold and read from and the illustrations are wonderful. I’m not going to give much away as you need to read this alone or with a child and become lost in its magic xxx
