    i think paws and whiskers was a great book it had many stories about cat and dogs and even a part about authors pets. from classics to modern stories written specially for the book. although the stories were quite long and it took me two whole weeks to read

    A great story extract from paws and whiskers. Its so good I want to read the rest of the book. I can tell why its been called Paws and whiskers because the book is based around cats . I’d love to get my paws on. Its a purr-fect story to show how much Leonie wanted a friend because even if she didn’t have a pet she pretended she had a cat because she didn’t want to be alone.
