Even though a book isn’t soft and fluffy to touch, it can still be the most friendly and faithful of friends! But if you have your doubts, find out if you’re a ‘Cat Book Person’ or a ‘Cat Person’ by taking our quiz…
1) Would you share your delicious dinners with your cat?
2) Are you ready to give up your comfy spot on the sofa?
3) Some of your friends might be allergic to cats… Would they still come around to play?
4) Would your parents let your cat climb the curtains?
5) Would you like to find your cat’s snacks on your doorstep every morning?
If you answered “no” more times than “yes”...
Congratulations, The Cat Book was made for you! Make a space on your bookshelf...
If you answered “yes” more times than “no”...
Then you need a cat in your life! (As well as The Cat Book). Now where to put the litter tray…
Personalize your book by giving your cat his very own outfit! Download and print the activity sheet, cut out and colour the clothes – little yellow boots, a magician’s hat, head boppers – and dress your cat up! With accessories, there will be no other cat quite like yours!
We’ve given our cat some snappy sunglasses and a stripy baseball cap (worn to the side, of course)! Introducing … Mr Cool Cat!
As you’ve discovered, you and your Cat Book can have all kinds of adventures together. But what might happen if a completely different kind of animal lived inside the pages of a book?
Let’s find out!
1) First, choose and draw an animal to feature in your book. What other animal have you always wanted to have as a pet?
We’ve chosen a fish, but we’re starting to think those teeth are looking a little too pointy…
2) That’s better – this little fish is much more smiley!
If you like, you can now colour your animal in.
3) Now it’s time to think about what your new animal friend would like to do – will they be really energetic and play all day, or will they like to sleep a lot? Our fish likes to bounce around and blow bubbles! Imagine four different activities and draw them, each on their own piece of paper.
4) It’s time for the front cover! Using The Cat Book as a guide, design a cover for your story. Don’t forget to draw your character, and to write the title of your book beside them.
5) Finally, using a stapler, attach your cover and four drawings together and – ta-da! – you’ve made your very own book! And if you think of more activities for your character, you can add them simply by drawing them on new pieces of paper and attaching them at the back.
Our book is called The Fish Book … we’ve just got to make sure we don’t hold it upside down and spill our fish’s water!
If you’ve made a book with an adventurous animal – a panda who likes to play chess, a deer who dances, a gorilla who likes to go bowling – be sure to tell us about it! Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
