Book Mews: Trouble at the Cat Café – Poppy’s Place

Hi everyone,

Today we are looking at the second book in the Poppy’s Place series by Katrina Charman.

poppy's place

The second book in this heart-warming series about the residents of Poppy’s Place cat café!

Isla is overjoyed that Mum has agreed to look into the idea of opening a cat café. It means Poppy and Roo can be the family’s forever cats, and there’ll be lots of other cats coming and going, too! But as they research the idea, the ‘to do’ list just gets longer. Can the family rally together to solve the problems or will this be the end of Isla’s dream?

Poppy’s Place is a fantastic new series for readers of 8 years and older, and will delight fans of Holly Webb, Helen Peters and Lauren St John. Bringing together themes of family, love and hope, all wrapped up with a bundle of cats, Poppy’s Place taps into the growing trend of cat cafés opening up across the UK.

Overall verdict: Just like the first installment the second book is set to delight young and older readers alike!
With the right balance of text and illustrations it’s set to keep the younger crowd visually engaged with the story. We love the way the author has created the characters and story. And of course this is the purrfect present for young animal lovers and those that stayed young at heart.

So will they overcome the problems and succeed with the cat cafe? You’ll have to read the 192 pages to find out!😀
