The Cat Mummy was written by Jacqueline Wilson (one of my favourite authors) and was published in 2001/ 2002 in two different editions – the Corgi Yearling edition and the Doubleday edition. It was illustrated beautifully by Nick Sharratt (who draws a lot for many different authors) and it was illustrated very exquisitely. This book is great for children who are over the age of 7 or 8 up to the age of 15 or 16 because adults are far too boring to read such a good and exciting book like this one. I think girls would like this book better than boys but I might be wrong. The plot of the story is that Verity’s mum and now her cat Mabel have both died. She is more upset about the cat because she did not even know her mother even though she went to the other’s grave a lot. The ending is quite nice though and it is a very clever idea!
