Review: Squishy McFluff - Supermarket Sweep! by Pip Jones
Publisher: Faber and Faber
Format: Paperback / eBook
Released: August 5th, 2014
Can you see him? My kitten? He has eyes big and round His miaow is so sweet (but it makes not a sound!) Imagine him quick! Have you imagined enough? Oh, good, you can see him! It's Squishy McFluff! When Mum drags Ava to the supermarket, her invisible cat Squishy McFluff can't resist coming along, with hilarious, chaotic and surprising results!
I love this series about Ava and her mischievous invisible cat, Squishy McFluff. It's lovely to read, rhyming throughout, and comes complete with some gorgeous illustrations that effortlessly make Squishy and Ava come to life.
In Supermarket Sweep!, Ava goes shopping with her mum, and of course little Squishy isn't far behind. Chaos soon ensues, and Ava ends up covered in all kinds of stuff, including foam and toilet roll. It's a fun shopping trip like no other, though Ava's mum is less than impressed!
Besides being super cute, Squishy McFluff is a great little cat that has a really special bond with Ava. They're like partners in crime, always together and causing trouble wherever they go. Pip Jones has created two highly memorable characters here, which I'm very fond of, and I look forward to more invisible antics from Squishy the Wonder Cat.
