The Bookshop Cat is a charming new children’s picture book that celebrates the power of reading and highlights the fact that “with a book, you can go anywhere and be anything!”
The story centres on a black cat who loves reading and finds his dream job at the Children’s Bookshop. Despite doubts from his own family, the Bookshop Cat loves his job and excels at finding the perfect book for each child that visits the shop.
All is well until the bookshop floods and the shop is not as busy as it once was. The Bookshop Cat’s family and friends come up with a plan and before long the Children’s Bookshop is bustling with children again.
The Bookshop Cat by Cindy Wume is the perfect story to help encourage a love of reading and books. With a gentle message on the importance of family and community, there are also other valuable lessons to be learned from this book as well as fantastically detailed illustrations to explore, making it a great new addition to your bookshelf.
The Bookshop Cat is available for a recommended retail price of R200.
