Title: Amazing Mr Zooty
Written and Illustrated by: Emma Chichester Clark
Published by: Anderson Press
This is the story of a cat called Mr Zooty who likes to help people. The Amazing Mr Zooty’s motto is:
‘Get out, help out’
He searches the park to find someone who needs his help and discovers Lucy and Sam Taylor. They are down on their luck and very poor. With the aid of his little red case Mr Zooty grants them all a wish to make their dreams come true but he likes to sprinkle in a few ideas of his own.
This is a good book to read aloud to a foundation class whilst showing the pictures and asking the children what they think might happen next. Early readers could use the illustrations to tell their own versions of the story.
