My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This may be a book aimed at younger readers than me but I really enjoyed reading it to my daughter at bedtime. Varjak Paw is the cat equivalent of a rebellious teen and an unlikely hero.
The story intertwines between the reality of a town where cats Vanish and Varjak’s family live in luxury at the Contessa’s house with the dream world where Varjak learns the secrets of The Way. It’s illustrations are very different but really add to the story of how Varjak overcomes various adventures in his quest to find a dog to save his family from the Gentleman.
Lots of suspense and surprises along the way, a great bedtime story or one for a confident reader to enjoy to themselves.
