Overview

The third book about Morris, the lovable fat ginger kitten whose main interest in life is food! A Roaring Good Read for children who are just able to read on their own.Morris gets chased up the apple tree by a great big dog. He crawls to the end of a very long branch…and then gets stuck. He is much too afraid to come down. His sister, Rose, climbs up the tree to join him, then they are both stuck. His little brother, Tom, rushes up to join them… then they are all stuck on the end of the very long, and now very wobbly, branch. Mother Cat persuades Tom and Rose to climb down. But she cannot get Morris down, he is much too scared. The only thing that will persuade Morris to come down is…FOOD!A third perfect text for beginner readers by this well-known author.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A departure from French's previous brightly colored picture books by a variety of illustrators, this easy-to-read chapter book, first published in Great Britain in 1995, is part of a series labeled, "Roaring Good Reads" that are "short, lively stories with illustrations on every page, for children just started to read by themselves." Morris the cat has first one problem then another as he gets stuck in a tree and encounters a fierce dog. The black-and-white drawings have simple appeal, sketching feline feelings, antics and accompanying dialogue. Functional for its purpose, but this original paperback with black-and-white illustrations will be a tough sell next to standards like Frog and Toad, Henry and Mudge or Mr. Putter and Tabby. (Easy reader. 6-8)
