The Cats of the Butterwick Sands is a children’s book following the various adventures of cats in a small run down seaside town called Butterwick Sands, a place that has seen better days; the hero being one special cat named Percy. He is a very clever and dignified cat and he is at the centre of all the adventures, stories and intrigues that the cats and other animals have. The other cats within the book are strays from across England and beyond – they come together to restore the funfair and caravan park, breathing life back into Butterwick and thus ensuring its survival.

My Thoughts

This charming story moves from one location to another with a mix of characters such as a Percy, Pebbles and Mr. Peabody. It includes many animals and describes their behavioral or physical characteristics to amuse readers. There are mentions of fur flying and crooked whiskers and the clucking voice of chickens. It also speaks of stray cats and donations to cat charities.
