Quirky and great fun

What did you like most about The Cat Mummy?

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.

What other book might you compare The Cat Mummy to, and why?

i think this book is quite unique. I love all Jaqueline Wilson books, especially the Were Puppy.

What does Sophie Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

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.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A story of the love between a cat and her owner

Any additional comments?

It is really worth listening too.
