Although this is a kids book I really, really did enjoy enjoy listening to it. It's fun, but it's also bit sad as Topher lost his mother, his new best friend is deaf and his new cat keeps going missing.
Ka the cat talks, which in my humble opinion makes fur a much better read than when the cat is just a cat. The story rattles along a a great pace, and although the book is not very long the story is still detailed enough to bring maximum enjoyment.
There wasn't anything I didn't like and am looking forward to listening to the next in the series.
My advice is try it, as mew know sometimes kids books are the best!
