Oliver Kitten’s Diary

Oliver Kitten’s Diary by Gareth St John Thomas (Exisle Publishing) PB RRP $29.99 ISBN 9781922539359

Reviewed by Kylie Buckley

Oliver Kitten’s Diary is a fun and humorous recount of a kitten’s first year of life. Oliver (don’t even think of calling him Ollie) was adopted by a human family when he was six weeks old. The precocious and cheeky cat is confident that everyone will want to know about his important life so he decides to keep a journal. Oliver captures his most memorable moments from each day, from stealth operations to simply snoozing. Despite his mother’s warning to stay out of trouble, Oliver seems to be in it on many occasions.

Animal lovers of all ages will adore reading about the antics of this delightfully mischievous cat, and be amused by the subtleties of feline and human behaviours.

This novel sized book features short diary entries, thick yellow page borders, patterned endpapers, and cat silhouettes adorning most pages. Oliver Kitten’s Diary is recommended for readers aged 9 years and older.
