Monty is a charming but cunning cat who, instead of looking after his owner's freshly-baked cake, eats it and lets his fellow cat Tiddles take the blame. Twice. Is this the most naughty, dastardly picture book character of the year? Will Tiddles speak up? Will Monty get away with his mischief after all?

The owner of Tiddles and Monty has the most marvellous thing to show them.

A cake, with extra chocolate and bonbons too! Delicious!

She knows she can trust her dear little cats to look after it for a moment... but when she returns the cake is GONE!

Just WHO could the culprit be? Surely it couldn't be her own darling sweet little Monty?

Find out in Oh Monty!, a story packed with mischievous humour and plenty of drama!

Longlisted for the 2022 Klaus Flugge Prize for Illustration.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An amusing tale of temptation, favouritism and mis-placed trust'

- Creative Steps magazine

'With his oversized, ping-pong ball eyes and over-the-top acting, there's something rather delicious about Monty's absolute villainy ... Gregory's illustrations have a brilliant zany energy as the cats hurtle around the pages, clawing at cakes, plates and each other'

- The Observer

'With hilarious images by Nici Gregory, this funny story is full of naughtiness! But behind the hilarity are also some great discussion points on fairness, favouritism, and taking the rap for something you haven't done!'

- Discover Children's Books

'The genius of this lively, engaging picture book lies in the superbly clever telling of the story ... The cats themselves are brought brilliantly to life by illustrator, Nici Gregory. These are cats with huge attitudes, characterful rather than cutesy, drawn with elegant lines as befits their pampered status and given completely hilarious facial expressions. The high-energy illustrations capture the drama of the storyline perfectly'

- Armadillo magazine

'Younger readers will utterly love hearing it ... and I am super excited to enjoy this book all over again, with the little ones interacting as we go along.'

- Book Bound

'If you love a cat caper (or cake!) then this is the book for you! ... The fantastic expressions on the cat's faces will make you laugh out loud'

- Mrs Brown's Book Box

“A fabulously fluffy tale with ‘cattitude' - and cake!”

Perfect for kids who love cats — and cake! This is a fun, relatable tale, dealing as it does, with that all-important question: if no one is looking, would you eat the cake? And if the answer is, YES! — then would... More
