Elliot Perlman’s first book for children is a tail-spin of a tale that will have you howling with laughter!

When a pampered cat has to share her home with a lost dog, sparks are set to fly. To her surprise, Catvinkle starts to like Ula. She even tells Ula her three secrets. But a cat and a dog can’t be friends – can they?

A tail-spin of a tale that will make you howl with laughter – and remind you that if you aren’t open to adventure, you might never meet your best friend.

I loved reading this book to children


This is a perfect gift for the festive season and will definitely delight children -- and their parents and grandparents. The characters leap off the page with their quirks and expressions. I was able to use the story to discuss bullying and good/bad neighbours with the children in my family. They were completely absorbed and listened very attentively. This book can be read on many levels, depending on the age of the child. Also loved the illustrations and the vibrant cover. Can't wait for the sequel!





A very enjoyable read for all ages with a few subtle lessons thrown in.
