I am a minibombo book: a little book buzzing with a big idea. If you have always wanted a pet, but your parents have never let you ...this is the book for you. Because, inside the pages of this book, your new cat awaits. Isn't he sweet? Just look at him twitch his tiny nose! As a pet-owner, it's your job to wake him up (call out his name), softly stroke his back (with your finger) and shelter him from the rain (your hand makes a great umbrella!). It's quite hard work - phew! - but it's so much fun. From minibombo, the creators of The White Book and Black Cat, White Cat comes a playful picture book that cleverly encourages you to interact with the physicality of the page itself, and a book that will, with the help of your imagination, bring a purr-y, fluffy cat to life. Miaow! Check out www.minibombo.com to find plenty of fun ideas for playing and creating inspired by this book!
"I am an enthusiast where the Minibombo series is concerned and these two are full of interactive fun." * Red Reading Hub * It's all great fun, and a great way to facilitate getting really immersed in a book. [...] The Cat Book will make a great alternative to a pet, if you've reached that stage - kids insisting on having a pet - this may buy you some time. * My Book Corner * "I really love books about animals and these two are super cute. I think these are both fantastic books for anyone thinking about getting a pet. They're fun ways of showing children what having a pet may be like and what needs to happen to look after them properly." * Mehimthedogandthebaby.com *
