A Cat with a Big Appetite


SidA number of years ago, there was a charming picture book that was written by Inga Moore that was called Six-Dinner Sid (Aladdin, 1991). Sid was a very smart and portly cat who lived at number one Aristotle Street. He also lived at number two, three, four, five, and six Aristotle Street. The owners of these homes all thought that Sid was their very own cat, and he ate well at each house every day. Well…Sid was found out when each owner took him to the same vet. They decided that Sid should not eat six dinners a day. Don’t worry about Sid though because this intelligent cat soon remedied that situation.

catFast forward twenty-two years and Tony Johnston shares the same story in The Cat with Seven Names (illustrated by Christine Davenier, Charlesbridge 2013). Johnson developed his cat’s owners more fully. This feline’s adventures brought many people from diverse backgrounds together.

Both books are charming…do check them out!
