Jessie is helping her dad prepare for the Open Day on his allotment. Unfortunately the long, hot summer means the vegetables look tired and wilted. When a mysterious stray cat arrives at the allotments, Honeysuckle, one of the gardeners, declares it a Rain Cat from Thailand.

Jessie has always wanted a pet, and is happy to help Honeysuckle pamper the cat with presents and make up poems to help the rain come. Naturally, the other gardeners are sceptical...but then it starts to rain...and will not stop!

    Comments about Rain Cat:

    I bought this book for my 8 year old Granddaughter, she really enjoyed reading it and also having parts read to her.

    Being a cat owner and having an interest in gardening made it more appealing as well.
