Short heartfelt read based around a farm, and tell of the experiences of Montezuma the ginger tom cat. Typical Morpurgo doesn't fail to leave out the harsh realities of nature. ( )

It does one good to read books like this from time to time. The language is so clear - not basic, but simple, with just the right word chosen in every sentence to convey the concept without losing the reader in a thicket of descriptive prose. The story is a simple one - a young boy discovers a kitten on his farm, and together they live a full life, full of adventure and misadventure (hence the title). An easy read that accompanied me through a day of travelling. ( )

I like this book because it tells the story of a cat who nearly dies 9 times, and eventually does die. ( )
