Review by Janine Rowe
An enjoyable tale for any age.
From the first page, I knew I was going to love this book. It is heartwarming and entertaining. The story starts with Oliver telling a new kitten about the night he was separated from his human George when the pub burned down and how he ended up being shared between two families. Oliver comes to be known as a cat with magical qualities with the things he does for the people in his little town.
Oliver’s main goal is to make sure everyone has a good Christmas. While doing so, he helps a lot of people in different ways from bringing families together, helping a little girl recover from the loss of losing her cat and another little girl who has leukemia and no friends to play with. He also helps the adults in his life by helping them build better lives for themselves, and in one case, even find love. You will also meet Oliver’s cat friends and learn all about them as well.
As you are reading this, you are probably thinking this is a child’s book, but I assure you people of all ages who love cats (or any animals) will enjoy this book. It is well written and the story kept me turning the pages and not wanting it to end. Even though it is a Christmas book, it’s a wonderful inspiring story for any time of the year.
