One of my absolute favourite things to see is kids enjoying books.
My eldest son is a huge bookworm and constantly has his head in a book. His literacy interests vary from Harry Potter types to Paul Jennings comedy with a few zombie varieties thrown in for good measure. Whereas my 8 year old really only has an interest in the Guinness World Records style books. I love that they enjoy different genres because it means they are constantly discovering new information and settings.
Books that suck you in
Don’t you just love it when you find a book, author or series that your kids just cannot put down? I do. This is currently books written by Ged Gillmore. His first book, Cats On The Run, was the highest selling self-published kids’ book in Australia last year and I have a good feeling that his new book Cats Undercover will follow in its footsteps.
If you are looking for a book that will keep your 7-12 year old enthralled and laughing constantly, than Cats Undercover should be next on their reading list.
Ged really knows how to tap into the minds of boys and make a story about three cats living on an abandoned farm hilarious. Cats Undercover is jammed packed full of action, cheeky antics and all that gross stuff boys seem to love from cover to cover. This book has been described as bonkers and silly, and I think with the addition of fun that sums it up perfectly.
Like any good book, the characters make the story. So here is a little run down on each of the three main cats.
Tuck is a little intellectually challenged but you have to give him points for confidence. Ginger has been living in the streets for a lot longer than the other two so she’s more experienced and isn’t shy about it. And last but not least, Tuck’s girlfriend Minnie, let’s just say she isn’t the sweetest.
Life is great, or is it?
The three cats were living happily on the abandoned farm only for their world to be turned upside when two evil pongs, aka humans, showed up.
Cats Undercover will take your kids on a rollercoaster of ride of undercover catbots, skateboarding skunk punks and it wouldn’t be complete without facing savage sewer rats and puddles of poodle piddle. But the fun doesn’t end there.
They struggle, they fight to survive the human’s deadly skinning machine and even find time to audition on Kitten’s Got Talent! The energy and adventure never stops.

Originally from the UK, Ged Gillmore is terrified one day someone will make him go home. He lives in Sydney where he loves the lifestyle and enjoys surfing (whenever he can get away from his desk).
Ged is passionate about children’s literacy and tours schools and libraries to explain the secret of good storytelling. He loves interacting with his fans on Facebook, Twitter or whatever social media platform kids are using this month.
