Me and My Cat?, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (7 ratings)

Description

Late one night, an old lady in a pointed hat climbs through the window into Nicholas' bedroom.

She brandishes her broom, fires out some words, and then leaves as abruptly as she came.

It's puzzling at the time, but not nearly as puzzling as what happens the next day...This is a hilarious tale of experiencing life from a different point of view, and finding out that it's just as complicated!

I "read" this as an e-book read aloud by Elijah Wood on Storyline Online. I found the story to be fun and relate-able, as I have often wondered what it would be like to become one of my cats for a day. In terms of an e-book, I think Elijah Wood did not do the best job of narrating the story. He wasn't bad, but he also left something to be desired in that he did not use a lot of excitement or expression in his voice while reading. There were a few moments that lacked enthusiasm. Most likely, he has little experience reading to kids, which is why is reading is lack-luster. However, the Storyline Online site provides many good resources for this book and I had fun thinking about the premise of the story. Ages 6 and up.

A story about a boy who gets cursed by a witch. He gets turned into his cat for a day. The story tells about his adventures as a cat. At the end of the day the witch comes back and turns him back into the boy. A delightfull book that is fun to read to children.

I liked this book. The story was engaging, carrying us along on Nicholas' adventures as a cat. The plot was also enjoyable in it's simplicity of bodies switching, but there was a hidden message of seeing someone's life from their eyes. When Nicolas assumed the dog would be nice to him but then wasn't, I saw a lot of opportunities for discussion which I personally look for in any book I read. The big idea of this story is you never really no someone until you've walked a day in their shoes.
