I liked how important Mable the cat was to her owner and how she wanted her to live on by preserving her as the ancient Egyptians used to preserve their important deceased.
i think this book is quite unique. I love all Jaqueline Wilson books, especially the Were Puppy.
She provides great character voices which helps the listener to imagine what the characters are like. I am also very dyslexic so having the book on audio means that I can enjoy the story unfold better than if I have to read it myself.
A story of the love between a cat and her owner
It is really worth listening too.
