Unbeknownst to each of his owners, Sid the cat lives with six different people on the same street. By doing so, he's able to get six different dinners every night! He also answers to six names, sleeps in six beds, and maintains six different personalities. All is perfect for Sid--until the day he catches a dreadful cough. Then it is off to the vet not once, but six times! Moore's humorous illustrations capture Sid's sly nature.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A conniving kitty finds bed and board with a sextet of families; PW said, ``Moore's witty text contains just enough wordplay and gentle humor to appeal to parents and children alike. This tale of multiple mischief is as clever as the cat it features.'' Ages 4-8. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- In Sid's neighborhood on Aristotle Street, the residents don't talk to one another. So it's simple for Sid, a six-dinner cat, to make six different people think he belongs to them. He works hard for his suppers, with six different names and six types of behavior. But when a cough precipitates six visits to the animal hospital, he is found out by the observant vet. His owners agree to make sure he receives only one meal a day, but since Sid is six-dinner cat, he just moves to Pythagoras Place where the neighbors do talk to one another and don't mind sharing dinner with him. Moore's large, colored pencil illustrations are realistic and fill the pages. She is especially strong in portraying individualized characters in the multiethnic neighborhood and the wonderful feline playfulness and insouciance of Sid. The text is rhythmic and the plot is one that children can follow and enjoy. Moore's text and lush illustrations work together to create a book that can be shared one-on-one or with a group. Readers will be happy to have this cat come back again and again. --Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI

Great color illustrations of Sid and his owners show him eating his six different meals, sleeping in six different beds, and behaving in six different ways.

Inga began illustrating while she was still at school where she had a constant and irresistible urge to liven up boring passages of Latin with cartoons, likewise physics and chemistry tests. It wasn't until many years later, that she saw illustration as something you could do as a career. She had no formal training but she did have a good grounding in technical drawing and patience and discipline. She wrote and illustrated her first books in Australia and then returned to England. As well as writing her own books, she has illustrated several classics such as Wind in the Willows and The Secret Garden. She can't see a time when she would want to stop making picture books - not altogether. It's one of the most enjoyable things you can do!
