Nat the Cat's Sunny Smile




A deliciously satisfying story about how our moods can affect others and the power of a smile

Nat the Cat jumps out of bed with a smile spread halfway round her head.
She's packed a delicious picnic to share with her friends, Billy Goat and Hugo Hare.

But Billy and Hugo are both feeling down. They are just not in a picnicky mood.
Nat carries on alone, but she soon finds that her smile is gone. Luckily, she's passed on her smile to her friends and they soon come along to cheer her right back up again!

Another gorgeous rhyming treat from the glorious Jez Alborough

Praise for Nat the Cat's Sunny Smile

“The bold colourful illustrations are immediately engaging and this story can be put to good discussion use for the way in which it illustrates moods and feelings.”

The School Librarian

“The book is written in rhyme, which always goes down well with the Madhouse Mini-testers, and is great fun to read out loud at bedtime. Each page has a huge, brightly coloured picture that really enhances the text. The characters are all really appealing and the story really caught Pierre's imagination... I've just noticed on the back of the book that two further stories will be coming soon featuring Billy and Hugo - Billy the Goat's Big Breakfast and Hugo the Hare's Rainy Day - so I'll definitely have to look out for those to complete the collection.”
