Read what reviewers, bookshops & festivals are saying about Porridge the Tartan Cat:
“The latest series to launch from Floris Books’ Young Kelpies list is a wild, laugh-out-loud romp featuring Porridge the Tartan Cat, a long story that involves precisely one cat and one tin of tartan paint.”
- Books from Scotland
“The writing is where these books really stand out. It’s actually a rather unique style which I haven’t come across before, and one that must have taken a huge amount of work to perfect. The writing includes alliteration, puns, onomatopoeia and lots of general word play. It makes for exciting and fun reading and is a great way to introduce play on words to children, the perfect opening for discussion on words and language. It’s really nicely done, and something I think would go down particularly well in schools for the more advanced readers, who can start to look at word play and explore this further. It would be a very effective book to use in school to aid creative writing also.” - BookMonsterAlly
