Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library and welcome to my furst review of 2019!

Now the book I'm reviewing today was meant fur last Friday, though sadly due to the Catmas Post, that and our Postman being on the missing list, [I hope the Kraken hasn't eaten him - OOPS!] it didn't arrive until last Caturday - fluffing typical! MOL

So anyhoo, I'm still sharing this as I think it's absolutely fan'cat'stic!

Furstly though I have a little Pet Peeve...

"Parsley where are mew?" I shouted. "I have a complaint!"

Parsley peered cautiously around the door into the library and replied." Yes Amber, how may I help mew?"

"Parsley I have a Pet Peeve and I need to get it off my fur right now!" I replied.

Parsley groaned inwardly and thought, 'OMC I just hope it's not as dramatic as last time!' 

"Sure Amber, what is it?" Parsley asked rather guardedly. "As mew know I haven't done any Pet Peeve posts in a while... but fur mew I can make it happen!"

"Good, now come in and sit down while I explain what's bugging my boggle," I instructed.

Parsley came in and sat on the rug. "Why the unhappy face?" he asked.

"What do mew mean, unhappy face?" I snapped. "THIS IS MY HAPPY FACE!"
'Oh heck!' Parsley murmured and began to back slowly out of the room.

Stay tuned fur Pet Peeves with Parsley tomorrow to find out what my boggle was this week, and now I think it's time to share my top book pick.

This week I'm sharing

The Twelve Cats of Christmas

Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me four Siamese, three climbing cats, two cats asleep, and a white cat with a red bow. This irresistible collection of festive felines features cats intently gazing out windows, mischievously playing with rolls of ribbon, contentedly lapping up milk, and relaxing in a variety of other friendly, familiar poses. 


"Ooooooooh look, my new book!" 

What did I think to The Twelve Cats of Christmas? I loved it, it's as simple as that!

I thought the illustrations were epic, the updated cat-themed verses were purrfect and all in all a thoroughly enjoyable little book.

Now I know that Catmas has been and gone but I do recommend mew get yourself a copy as it's just too cute not too! MOL

Purrfect fur all ages and it would make the most fabulous pressie fur anyone who loves cats.
