We have this in our library and i really have wanted to read this because i love cats!!! now I have it and it is great. I also love the description- it’s so good. it has lots of cliffhangers, followed by sad parts. it’s happy though, I like it a lot.

This is a really fun tale of a cat called Montezuma. It’s quite confusing at the start but then you get the hang of it. Each chapter has it’s own cliffhanger because each chapter is Montezuma’s life.

This book is a tearful and a sad ending story. My best so far! It is good enough for a film.
