An utterly delightful rhyming book, purrfect for the whole family.

About the author

Jacqueline Harvey

Jacqueline Harvey worked in schools for many years but has had a passion for storytelling since she was a child.

She is the author of the popular Alice-Miranda, Clementine Rose and Kensy and Max series, which have sold over one and a half million copies in Australia alone. Her books have received numerous short-listings and awards while her picture book, The Sound of the Sea, was a CBCA Honour Book.

Jacqueline speaks to thousands of young people at schools and festivals around the world, and says the characters in her books are often made up of the best bits of children she’s met over the years. While she is not a twin, like Kensy and Max she does have excellent powers of observation and has always thought she’d make a great spy.

Jacqueline lives in Sydney and is currently working on more Kensy and Max adventures, and some exciting new projects too.

Praise for That Cat

Cat lovers and nonsense lovers, this is the book for you. Jaqueline Harvey, bestselling author for children, plays on words that rhyme with ‘cat’ in order to make a list of all the cats across the country that the narrator has met and thought were interesting. Kate Isobel Scott’s zany illustrations interpret the simple rhyme in surprising ways that expand the narrative from so few words . . . You’re sure to find this book in every library.
