Friday Reads: I'm Not a Skunk #bookreview

cat with books graphic

We love cat books (well, we love everything cats), and we love our blogging pals so it was a pleasure to review this wonderful book by Ellen J Pilch of the 15andmeowing cat blog.

We already read and reviewed Ellen's first book Prancie's Prayer which was just as delightful so we were looking forward to reading this one and we weren't disappointed! 

I Am Not a Skunk is about a cat who gets mistaken for a skunk and is Ellen's second picture book. Loosely based on how her beautiful black and white cat Emmy came to live with her, this is a sweet and short tale - purrfect for children but adults will enjoy it too and will love reading it to their kids. 

The gorgeous illustrations by Nicolas Peruzzo 
also bring the story to life and younger children will delight in returning to flick through the book time and time again.

The illustrations work well on the Kindle version but maybe children would prefer the paperback edition to turn the pages and enjoy gazing at the pictures on their own. It's definitely a storybook to treasure. 

And adults too - this little book will surely cheer you up for the day.

We read the Kindle version via KindleUnlimited in the UK.

The paperback edition is also available on Amazon.
