Barney Willow thinks life couldn't get any worse. He's weedy and has sticky-out ears. Horrible Gavin Needle loves tormenting him. And worst of all, his Dad has been missing for almost a year, and there's no sign of him ever coming home. Barney just wants to escape, and find another life. Being a cat, for example. A quiet, lazy cat. Things would be so much easier - right?
I read this after reading The Humans by the same author (I love Matt Haig) and although it is very much a children's story, it still has the same quirky humour and pathos of The Humans. Haig's writing is so tender, funny and engrossing. A really lovely little story.
