Keith the Cat With the Magic Hat

Keith is not your average cat. He is a cat with magical powers – or, at least, with a magic hat. But on the day that Keith loses his magic hat, he discovers that magic is still possible – with or without a snazzy hat! This wacky and colourful picture book from Sue Hendra introduces another endearingly crazy character kitted out with unlikely accessories. Don’t miss this wonderfully quirky, feel-good tale from the creator of Barry the Fish With Fingers and Norman, the Slug With the Silly Shell.

  • I really enjoyed this book which is about a normal cat called keith who took a stroll through the park and ends up having ice cream on his head and says to the other cats that it was magic and that the flake was a magic wand. But was it magic? Well you need to read the book to find out!

    My favourite scene was when all of the cats were amazed at the moving wand as they thought Keith was moving it with his ‘magic powers’. My favourite character is the black cat as he looks exactly like my grandad’s cat, Thomas. I rate this book 9/10, it had great illustrations.
