Matilda Webb

The Scotsman

(October 18, 2008)
Matilda Webb's The Ship's Kitten is a delightful, sequential early reader about a cat who seeks a shipshape home. There are plenty of ships and boats but none of them is quite right – until an unlikely possibility sails into the harbour. Inspired when the author was living in Orkney, this is a gentle, satisfying little feline drama, with splendid illustrations by Ian Benfold Haywood.
