Paws, Claws and Frilly Drawers

Talking cats, spoiled brats and a young girl starting at a new school are all the ingredients you need for a hilarious read. And that’s what kids aged 6 + will get with Sarah Horne’s charming book, Paws, Claws and Frilly Drawers.

We’ve got Bring Your Pet to School Day on Thursday and I don’t have a pet! What am I going to do?

Of course, Molly could always ask to borrow Mimi. But taking a talking cat to school is sure to spell only one thing – T.R.O.U.B.LE.

Kids will love the characters in this book – Molly , the kind and sensible heroine, Mimi the mischievous talking cat and the mean spoiled Saffron Von Volavon who gets her just desserts, but who the heroine is still kind to in true heroine style.

Bring Your Pet to School Day is such a favourite with kids of all ages so you know they’re going to enjoy this one. The easy-to-read-text make Paws, Claws and Frilly Drawers a great book for newly independent readers.

I loved the humorous text in this book and the black and white illustrations are hilarious. There’s also plenty of action and tension leading up to the Pet parade finale.

Parents and readers will like the way Molly is magnanimous in her victory and generously shares her rewards. Mimi, the harsh but fair talking cat keeps life interesting for both Molly and Saffron.

Sarah Horne’s charming illustrations bring the characters to life. This is Molly & Mimi’s second adventure and is a fun choice for young readers. Paws, Claws and Frilly Drawers is written and illustrated by Sarah Horne and published by Scholastic.
