To Be A Catt by Matt Haig, reviewed by Philip Ardagh

This is a fun book, but certainly not silly, and things really do get a little hairy once in a while: there's a whiff of real danger. And when Barney does become a cat, something very unexpected happens and, no, I'm not going to tell you what. It transpires that there are three types of cat: the two-legs (who used to be human); the firesides (happy, domestic cats); and the swipers (tough street cats). They don't all see eye to eye, of course. Then there's the mysterious Terror cat to contend with. Ultimately, though, To Be a Cat is a book about being comfortable in your own skin rather than someone else's fur. PHILIP ARDAGH
