Hello gorgeous library guests 


Welcome to the Mewton-Clawson Library at BBHQ 

Thank mew for joining me in the stacks today and today, as it's the last Friday of the month I'm joining the Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop with Mudpie from the pawesome blog:

And this is my photo, I was purchasing some books at the time and was told I couldn't have any more!

Today the P.A. is also joining in Friday Fill-ins Blog Hop with the ameowzing 15 & Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.

1. Why is _________________ so expensive?

2. On holidays, I always have a second serving of __________________________.

3. I’m eternally grateful for _________.

4. ‘Tis the season for _________.

The P.A.'s answers are...

1. Why is everything so expensive? And have you noticed how small everything is compared with years ago?  I bought a box of After Eight Mints the other day and they're not much bigger than a postage stamp now.

2. On holidays, I always have a second serving of vodka, and maybe a third if it's flavoured vodka! 

3. I’m eternally grateful for my hubby, cats and all the wonderful friends in the cat blogosphere.

4. ‘Tis the season for good things to happen, so here's wishing everyone good things.

The Ten Lives of Hector, The Cat!


Jane L King

       Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:      

What you may not know is that cats have a special sense that allows them to travel through space and human time, and they can travel completely unseen! With the help of a large dictionary, a little bit of sunshine, and a whole lot of sleeping, Hector is taken to many wonderful places.

This is purrobably one of the shortest reviews I've ever done, but then the book is not very long, it's more of a novella in my humble opinion. 

Anyhoo it's great; a really fun, little story with some absolutely gorgeous full-colour illustrations throughout.

Hector goes on quite the adventure to ancient Egypt (one of my favourite places ever) and is, in fact, a time-travelling cat, I'm surprised we've not bumped into him on one of our missions! MOL

So all I can say is, if mew love cats, adventure, ancient Egypt, time travel and a bit of history this is so a book for mew!

I hope there are more in the series as I'm keen to see where Hector goes next.

I really hope mew enjoy the book as much as I did if mew decide to read it.

It's time fur me to say BFN or bye-fur-now as mew know the drill, so many books, so little time and I'll be back next week with another specially paw-picked book just for mew, and don't furget that all my previous reviews can be found on my Book Review page.

We did have a sponsored post planned for tomorrow but the P.A. had one too many appointments this week stealing her time so that post will now be on Tuesday instead, and we'll be back on Sunday with our usual selfies post.

Until next time...

Keep calm and read more books

  1. Love your fill-ins and it appears we're all on the same page with #1. We're paying twice or three times as much and getting so little.

    Ten lives. Nothing like getting and extra life.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥

  2. Amber, it that a fresh scratch across your nose?
    You'd better go beat up whichever cat did that to you!
    Thank you for the book review, and wouldn't you know it...someone hacked my credit card account! Thankfully, the company waived those charges, but it's creepy, you know?

  3. Great fill in answers. Hey Amber, oh that credit limit look! That was a nice review sweetie and thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  4. That sounds a sweet book and Ancient Egypt has always fascinated me.
    I ordered some chocolates to arrive in yesterday's grocery order also including After Eight. When I saw them I said, "Where the fluff is the rest of the box!"

  5. Poor Amber, you look so sad. I hope you an get more books. This one looks good. Thank you to your PA for participating in the fill-ins, great answers, especially #'s 3 and 4. Have a nice weekend. XO

  6. That sounds like an adorable book! And I don't blame you one bit for that look if you were told you couldn't buy anymore books :(

  7. That, sounds such a cool cat, and a marvellous life to lead. Love the fact it has colour illustrations too. Mrs H says illustrations add another few layers to any book, and are to be commended when an author has them added. Persoannly I love any that include mice and cream ;)

  8. Really good fill ins and Dad says he is with you except the vodka as he is a Teetotaler. We think it means Take Your Tea Totally Later but he disagrees. You humans.
    Amber this looks like a another great book. We got a copy of "The Catsup High Detective Agency" and we are Think, Maybe, Hmmm, You suggested "Breaking Cat News" by Georgia Dunn. Very Very Funny and we got another on "Take it Away Tommy" which is also great. If it was not you who suggested these then try them on. Great fun books go give for the holidays. Purrs Amber you and yours are the very best of everything we love about blogging friends

  9. We wouldn't be happy either if we were told we couldn't have any more books. But you still look downright adorable, Amber! And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I really like how you answered #4. Purrs!
