Today we have another very special book that we were lucky to get our hands on!
The book in question? ALFIE – The Doorstep Cat by Rachel Wells!
The book begins with how Alfie looses his elderly owner and their family is left behind to decide what to do with poor Alife. Based on the discussion of his owners family Alfie fears the thought of ending up in a shelter and decides to search for a new home on his own.
The book is written from the view point of Alfie, other cats and the humans that he meets along the way on his journey!
The story unfolds over 300 and a few pages and has kept us glued to the pages for the entire time. 😀
This is a perfect example as to why pets are so important to our life by bringing hope and companionship to those around them.
We loved the fun way that the author wrote the story especially when writing from the viewpoint of cats – trying to get across what cats would think and how they react in situations while keeping the book interesting and engaging throughout! You can most certainly tell that the author is not just a cat lover but also a cat “owner” (or should we say is being owned by cats 😉 )
This book is most certainly a must have and more than likely once you lay your hands on it, you won’t want to put it down until you are finished! So if you are looking for a christmas present for friends or family… ;D
More info on the book from the publisher:
Releasing in hardback on 23 October, Alfie The Doorstep Cat is an uplifting, heart-warming tale for Christmas.
For fans of A Street Cat Named Bob, this is the only book you will want to find in your stocking this year.
Can a pet really change your life? The residents of Edgar Road don’t think so – that is, until Alfie turns up.
Alfie is a homeless cat, left with nowhere to go after his elderly owner passes away. But when he first sets eyes on Edgar Road, Alfie knows he’s found his new home.
However, the street’s residents don’t agree – the last thing they need is another pesky cat, and he is shooed away from every doorstep he comes to.
But as life throws its worst at the residents of Edgar Road, they soon realise how much they all need Alfie – a cat who brings hope to the darkest times, and who will always be a friend to those in need.
Alfie will take you on a journey like no other this Christmas, an instant heart warmer and the perfect stocking filler for animal lovers everywhere.
