A curiously flat tale of three cats living in a Sydney household. There is an odd component, in that the cats live in a second household for half of each year while the owners travel, but the story stops when they go to the other household and resumes when they return. If the co-owners had also written their story this might have been something much more interesting.

So it's the story of three cats in one household, told without revealing anything profound about the owners - or indeed as any cat owner would attest - anything particularly profound about the cats. But for an obsessive level of observation, and a certain sweetness to the stories (because it is essentially a collection of vignettes) there'd be nothing to this story at all. Something for cat lovers to dip into on a slow afternoon, or for reading to children. Actually in the hands of a good illustrator and writer these stories would be something exceptional in a big format young children's book. ( )
