I Am a Very Clever Cat by Kasia Matyjaszek (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E)

Meet Stockton the cat! The mice are very friendly...
September 2016, Templar, 32 pages, Paperback, Review copy 

Book summary
Stockton the cat is extremely clever and very good at everything. Especailly knitting. He is excellent at knitting. If you are very lucky, he will show you how he knits a fancy scarf. He never gets in a tangle at all. Never. Not even a little bit.  

Nayu's thoughts
A must read for cat lovers! I saw the cover and laughed - I adore cats, know all about their attitude issues (my own cat has attitude the size of an elephant), plus I love yarn craft. Stockton is self-assured and good at a lot of things but mistakenly thinks he is great at knitting. He isn't! It was fun watching the bright pink yarn get in more of a state with each passing page, while Stockton remained convinced he was amazing at it. 

The super cute mice are always active in the scene living their lives, and as Stockton finds out their hardworking atttude helps save him from being laughed at. I had great fun imagining what other activities they must help Stockton with while convinced that he can do anything, and hope there will be at least a sequel!
