Alfie The Holiday Cat by Rachel Wells @ACatCalledAlfie @AvonBooksUK


Book Description:

The Sunday Times bestseller returns for a fourth book! Alfie and his mischievous kitten George are back for more adventures – this time taking them a long way from home…

Alfie and George just can’t seem to keep out of trouble. So when they hear that their owners have got a new holiday home, they can’t wait to visit it and enjoy some new adventures.

But when they arrive, they don’t find the comfort they’re used to. Crumbling walls, peeling paint, dripping ceilings…this little Cornish cottage is clearly on its last legs.

Family and friends rally round to try and save the cottage – but it soon becomes clear that the locals don’t want them there at all. It’s up to Alfie and George to make sure their family is welcomed into the village – that’s if they can keep out of the way of the nastiest cat they’ve ever encountered…

My Thoughts:

Whether it’s my age or not I don’t know, but I have become a cat lover quite late on, getting my first cat less than two years ago. I won’t go into how old I am but having a dog also I hope I don’t fall into the crazy cat lover category just yet! Only joking for all the crazy cat lovers out there.

Doing my food shop I always go down the book aisle in my local supermarket and of course as soon as I saw Alfie and George staring at me from the shelf, I mean how could I resist those faces? So off into my trolley it went.

I haven’t read any other books by this author so obviously haven’t read any other books in the Alfie series. That didn’t matter one iota though as this easily read as a stand alone, though of course it has made me want to go and read the others also now.

Alfie is quite a sophisticated cat. He has been around awhile and is quite intelligent. Not like little George who is still very young and just what you would expect a kitten to be like. Both cats are staying with a family who have been left a house of which they wish to turn into a holiday home for them and their friends.

I could almost feel the heat radiating from the pages whilst reading of their stay in the beautiful Cornish cottage. To be able to spend a summer with the sea and sun just sounded bliss. Only problem is some people are not happy about their arrival and their intentions for the cottage and it is down to Alfie to save the day.

Alfie the Holiday Cat is an engaging and wonderful read. It transported be from my home during a very cold time of year to the heat and warmth of a summers day. (P.S it does start off and ends off at winter time hence the Christmassy look) A great read for most ages and a must read for all the animal lovers out there.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.

Alfie the Holiday Cat is available to purchase from Amazon.

  1. It looks delightful! Those little faces!! Not my usual type of read but I think I’m going to order it. I’m trying to get my 9 year old daughter to read more and this looks like something we could enjoy together.
