Publisher's Summary

An enchanting new chapter book for children, from number one best-selling author Matt Haig; cover illustration by the award-winning Emily Gravett. 

Evie is a little girl with a special talent. She can talk to animals. But when she rescues the school rabbit, Gerald, and sets him free, Evie lands in big trouble. She promises her dad never to talk to animals again. For a whole year, Evie ignores them all. She doesn’t chat to the birds and dogs. She even ignores a little silver tabby cat who miaows: ‘Help me! Help me!’ 

But when Evie sees the same silver kitten on a missing poster, she secretly starts using her magical gift again. Soon she discovers that this cat isn't the only animal to have gone missing in town. And if Evie won’t find them, who will?

A wonderful adventure

My 6 year old daughter and I loved the story. Natascha made the book come alive! The different voices and accents were so well done!
Highly recommended!!

Fairly nice.

I rate this book 'Fairly nice', that is the title of my review.
The overall is OK, but it is a little sad. There are somber parts in the story. For example: When Evie almost became expelled, also, Evie does not know her mom very much, ETC.
The performance was fine, however, the reader, Natascha Mcelohne did not have very much expression in her voice.
However, the story rating was top notch. I love animals, and sometimes I try to communicate with creatures just like the girl in the story did.
I am now a fan of this book.

Feelgood!

I'm an adult and really liked the interaction with the animals. Who wouldn't like to hear what they have to say? And an excellent way to invoke empathy with animals. Recommended!

Loved it - and I'm an adult!

This is the first time I've ever phoned in sick at work in order to finish a book.
Natasha's narrative is fabulous, especially her elephant voice!
