I love a good children’s book with great illustrations and a refreshing story – like today’s read – I Don’t Know What to Call My Cat by Simon Philip (Author) and Ella Bailey (Illustrator). We all have had the experience: finding the perfect name for a pet, a boat, even a kid, and wondering if we did the right thing as you never know how the personality will match up. In this fun book – with illustrations that advance the story and entertain on their own – we are treated to such a tail, er, tale, and it is a lot of fun.

About I Don’t Know What to Call My Cat by Simon Philip and Ella Bailey: “When a cat unexpectedly arrives at her house, a little girl takes him in and tries to find the perfect name. Kitty? Rambo? Mr. Maestro? None of these is quite right. Cat owning is harder than she imagined, and then the cat disappears! Good thing her next pet arrives so unexpectedly—and he’s easy to name, even if he is a bit naughty. But when Steve the Gorilla proves to be much too mischievous to be a pet, the missing, nameless cat just might turn out to be a hero!”

I Don’t Know What to Call My Cat by Simon Philip and Ella Bailey is available from Amazon and other fine booksellers everywhere.
