Meet Matilda and her beloved cat! Matilda likes to play and so embarks on lots of activities that she is sure her cat will love too, such as climbing trees, having tea, playing with wool... but her cat doesn't seem very enthusiastic.

Unfazed, Matilda continues to find some fun things to do, with her cat of course, such as dressing up and going on a bike ride. Matilda's cat is still not impressed and Matilda is getting frustrated. After all, what good is a pet if it doesn't want to play?

Perfect for children with pets, this book is a pleasure to read with its beautiful and highly original illustrations by an exceptionally talented author/illustrator.
