Life for Emily and Mr Pusskins is dreamy, until the day she comes home with a Very Special Present ...a KITTEN! Even though Little Whiskers is small and looks awfully angelic, she is not. She a tiny package of peskiness. Little Whiskers deliberately creates all sorts of mess and mayhem around the house, and the worst thing is that it's Mr Pusskins who gets the blame! So how will Mr Pusskins deal with this naughty nuisance? 'How the grumpy old puss and the spirited kitten come to terms and settle into a comfortable life together is revealed with a sprightly touch in Sam Lloyd's hilarious illustrations.' Julia Eccleshare - The Guardian
