Good puss or bad cat?Jekyll or Hyde?One and the same?Who decides?Puss Jekyll is the soft cuddly cat of the house grooming her fur, but at night she becomes Cat Hyde, hunting mice, all fang and claw. Page by page this delightful book explores the two very distinct personalities of the enchanting pet. Sleeping in a cosy spot or prowling in the moonlight, lapping milk from a bowl or stalking a defenceless trembling vole, playing with a ball of wool or savaging her prey, graceful and aristocratic or ruthless street fighter, can this really be the same creature?The beautifully evocative rhythmic and rhyming text is accompanied by luminous coloured-pencil and watercolour drawings that make the reader want to reach out and feel the fur. This treat for cat-lovers of all ages is from the highly acclaimed author of bestselling picture books such as Tell Me Something Before You Go to Sleep, and the illustrator of such classics as Martin Waddell's The Pig in the Pond and the Boston Globe Horn Book Award winning In the Rain with Baby Duck.
5 star review - ‘Barton, on generous double-spreads, splendidly captures the dual aspects of this cat… matched by Dunbar's descriptive word sequences, making this a lovely book for a child to look at alone, or even better, to share with a complicit cat-admiring adult.'
'This is one of those books that you feel will become an immediate classic. It is both simple and sophisticated. Smaller children will love the illustrations and older ones will enjoy the comparison between the two sides of the personality. A really lovely book.'
