I just started my second book in the Warriors saga, by Erin Hunter which is a pen name for three authors. I started reading the first one to help me write a book about my cat and give him a voice. The second one, I have to admit
I absolutely love the books. Just call me a child at heart. They are better than “The Cat Who…” series. What’s delightful about the books?
The cat names: Tigerclaw, Yellowfang, Mousefur and Fireheart to name a few.
The rituals: naming of the cats, meetings between the clans and the clan structure.
Funny or insulting lines: “Sounds like a pawful”, “I’ll have the other clans shaking in their flea-bitten skins”, “Excitement tingled in his paws”, “What’s a kittypet like you doing out in the woods?” and “Just a two-legged pet”.
Buy it for a child and read it yourself when no one is looking Tell yourself you’re buying it to read to a child—just try one book and you will be hooked.
I wish I’d know about these books when I was reading to my nephew, Kyle. He loves cats and he liked me to read to him before he went to bed.
