By: Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
Tabby McTat has a miaow that is loud and strong so it is a good thing he is a buskers cat. Tabby and Fred sing together for their money. One day Tabby goes for a stroll and while he is away something happens to Fred, when Tabby gets back Fred isn’t there. He waits and waits and still no Fred. He is taken is by some humans but still searches for Fred. It seems the two of them may never sing together again.
This is a cute little tale from the people who gave us The Gruffalo. The illustrations are wonderful and Scheffler’s distinctive style works so well with Donaldson’s storytelling. The text itself is simple yet well detailed and complex enough (while not being complicated in any way) to keep a kindy or preschool reader engaged. This is a great story about the power of friendship. This is a author/illustrator pairing that just works so well.
