The King Cat by Marta Altés

A cat's life isn't always easy. 

One day you're king of the house

and then everything changes...

The King Cat is in every way the whimsical read that we've come to expect from Marta Altés. The illustrations are lively and inviting. There is a bit of tongue and cheek and a touch of whimsy jostling for your attention as you read the story; the words jump off the page and make you eagerly bounce along as you turn each page.

The characters make it relatable. Who doesn't like the camaraderie between a cat and a dog? If you are interested in this particular storyline, you should pick up this little gem for your kids as well: 


In The King Cat, lessons of compromise make it a worthwhile teaching moment for kids.

Change can be a good thing. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and you need the influence of new ideas and people to help you see the world in a new perspective. A great teaching for kids about accepting change and appreciating diversity into their lives. 

While kids learn the value of sharing and adjusting to change, there is another lesson to be learned. One of the joy of reading. And Marta Altés does that once again in The King Cat
