MY SUMMARY

An unnamed boy, his sister Sally and their pet fish (Fish) are sitting at home on a cold wet day, staring out the window, bored to their teeth when suddenly, with a loud noise, a tall, human-sized cat (Cat) with a white and red-stripped hat and a red bow tie, appears before them. Cat immediately starts showing the kids some tricks, promising to make the day fun but Fish is not deceived. Fish repeatedly tells the kids to show Cat the door, he knows Mother won’t approve of Cat’s presence. But the kids are intrigued by Cat and they don’t. So with his companions, Thing One and Thing Two, Cat totally wrecks the kids’ home. Then Fish spies Mother walking home …

Read the book to find out how Cat made the day fun for Sally and her brother and whether or not they cleaned Cat’s mess up before Mother got to the door.
