Norton, The Loveable Cat Who Travelled the World by Peter Gethers

March 2011, Red Fox 
144 pages, Paperback 
Review copy 

Children's, 7+ 

Cats, travel, moving home, aeroplanes, friendship, fun, 

Peter Gethers hates cats. That is until he meets Norton, a very cute, very friendly Scottish Fold kitten.

Soon Peter and Norton are inseparable, travelling together on trains and boats, in planes and cars all over the world! Eating at restaurants, making new friends and meeting famous movie stars - read all about these and Norton's other real-life adventures in this wonderful true story.

Nayu's reasons for loving Norton: he's a cat, he's adorable, he's highly intelligent, very adventurous, and super cute. 

How evil/nasty is the enemy? Um, there isn't actually an enemy. Maybe another cat but, that's normal for cats. 

Are there plenty of plot twists and surprises? Again its not that kind of book, but I was amazed at Norton's travels, and how people loved him. 

One of my favourite parts...was definitely when Norton slept on Peter's pillow. Such a cute moment. 

I give it 10/10 - it has photos!
