On the morning of the 17th, after a particularly sleepful night, Julie Galles woke up to find herself transformed into a cat. Still half asleep, she watched a set of ginger and white paws stretch out on the beige duvet cover and felt every inch of her body yearning for a good scratch.
She yawned and shook her head, a set of gray whiskers flickering in the corners of her eyes. Overcome by a sudden tedious thought, she took a gander around the room, followed by a relieved exhale on the note that nothing else had changed. Her little studio apartment was the same she had left it the night before…
I wanted to read this book as it intrigued me, the way a woman called Julie wakes up as a cat, it is a unique story as I have never read anything like this before. I found it slightly weird but also intriguing, Julie goes on a mission as a cat to help her understand humans. I have a cat so every time I was reading this story I was looking at him wondering what he was thinking about. There are some nice illustrations in this book too which surprised me but in a good way as it breaks the story up a little. I would say it is quite a short story but one I have really thought about afterwards. Now I am always wondering what my cat is thinking.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
