This book is about cats who are cousins. Even though the cats come from the same family, they are bound to have differences due to who they are. This book is about different social, religious and schooling backgrounds as well as challenges posed by the suburbs where the cats are staying. However just like in real life, the cats are naughty and behave badly. They fight a lot and even got into trouble in their school. According to Stacey, the constants fights are real reflections of daily lives. Stacey’s word, ‘life is not a bed of hatred. You grow better when you fight to spread love and have fun in a child’s way’.
Bob and the Snake
Bob loves snakes with his whole heart. He is super happy because he heard his parents planning to buy him a real snake for his birthday. A few weeks after he received the snake, it was crown the neighborhood Hero for saving the family from a thief who broke into their house while they were asleep. Ironically, Lob the snake is the same reason why Bob runs away from home for days. During school holidays, the family decides to travel to Disney Land. Find out if Lob the snake was allowed in the plane or not and how the story ended. Stacey concludes that ‘.. no matter how much they try, children will always be naughty and parents will always be hard’.
It shall be fun, fun and play. Come one, Come all.
