It's the last school day before the Christmas holidays. ”What are you going to do for Christmas?” asks Kristin. ”I'll be with August,” I reply. ”Can I come with you today?” she asks. I don't answer. I don't want to be with Kristin today. I've got other plans.
”Come here a moment, Ruth,” Dad calls from the living room. I can tell from his voice that it's something I won't like. ”We have a surprise for you,” says Dad. He smiles. ”I don't like surprises, you know that,” I say. ”I think you'll like this surprise,” Dad says. But Ruth the cat girl doesn't want to go to Lanzarote for the Christmas holidays, and she doesn't want to link up with Kristin either. Ruth and her cat, August, are going to do a secret project, and they don't want to be disturbed!
Kattejenta is a charming debut story written by Veronika Erstad and illustrated by Bo Gaustad. A book to be read aloud, about friends, cats and wanting to choose for yourself.
'The relationship between the two girls is so down to earth and so well described that it is a joy'
'A fine and entertaining book about time alone, cats and not liking surprises.'
