The cover on this is a fun one which ties in well with the book, with Trixie waving as she sits on the back of her owner’s broomstick. This book is a must for black cat fans and those who are looking for a special book around Halloween time.
Trixie is convinced she’s not a proper witch’s cat, as she has one white paw which sets her apart from all the other black cats. Trixie embarks on mischief and fun to try and make herself a cat fit for a witch….mayhem and paint are involved!
The illustrations within this are brilliant, colourful and appear on both pages. How far should Trixie go to make herself into a completely black cat….and will she like the consequences of her new look?
Our 5 year old loves the storyline in this, and enjoys predicting what is about to happen.
Trixie has a fairly simple message which is told in a fun and engaging way. Being different is a good thing, and making yourself the same as everyone else is not fun.
