To Be a Cat
by Matt Haig

Goodreads synopsis:
Barney Willow thinks life couldn't get any worse. He's weedy, with sticky-out ears. Horrible Gavin Needle loves tormenting him - Barney has no idea why. And headteacher-from-hell Miss Whipmire seems determined to make every second of Barney's existence a complete misery! Worst of all, Dad has been missing for almost a year, and there's no sign of him ever coming home.

To Be a Cat is Matt Haig's book for children, and although it's for younger children, I still really want to read, simply because I am in love with his writing. I read The Radleys when it was a part of the Channel 4 TV Book Club, here in the UK, a couple of years ago, and fell in love with it. And I also read his latest book, The Humans, just before it was released, and fell completely in love with it - it's a masterpiece. So I am now hunting down his older books. I already have The Possession of Mr Cave on order, and then I'll be after this one!
If you haven't already picked up one of his books, you must! They are spectacular!

This looks adorable! I loved the Radleys, and can't wait to get a copy of The Humans. (Hmm, that would have been a good wishlist choice!). I just read The Dead Fathers Club, and really enjoyed that one too!
