Sapevate che i gatti sono magici?

Era un giorno come tanti altri, quello in cui Barney si mise a osservare un gatto dal pelo grigio e a desiderare di essere come lui. E, da quel momento, tutto cambiò. Età di lettura: da 10 anni.

To Be A Cat is a stand-alone book for young readers by popular British author, Matt Haig. It’s Barney Willow’s twelfth birthday, but it’s hardly what you’d call a happy one. His parents are divorced, and his dad’s been missing, properly missing, since last summer. His mum is sad and a bit manic. He’ Leggi tutto
I decided to listen to this audiobook having read a couple of other books by Matt Haig. It wasn't till I started listening that I realised it was a children's Y/A book but it was so good I finished the audiobook. Absolutely brilliant. Recommended.
Although I knew To Be A Cat is aimed at a younger audience than the books I would normally read, I loved The Radleys so was determined to give it a go anyway. I'm glad I did. Having always had cats in our family, Haig drew me in by telling me that cats are magical. The book starts off with a fantast Leggi tutto
“ I gatti sono magici.Questa è pura verità.I gatti. Sono. Magici. ” Che libro delizioso! Una storia di puro intrattenimento: non ha altra pretesa che divertire il lettore e ci riesce benissimo. Nulla di nuovo a dire il vero, l’idea dello scambio di corpi è quanto di più trito si possa immaginare nell’amb Leggi tutto
I've loved everything Matt Haig's written since discovering him through The Last Family in England, which is still in my all time favourites list. I need to tell you though that this book is quite firmly in the aimed-at-children bracket - large print, relatively simple language (but absolutely no ta Leggi tutto
Schöne Geschichte für Kinder. Man merkt hier aber auch deutlich, wie sehr Matt Haig sich als Schriftsteller weiter entwickelt hat.
This is a wonderful little book. It centres around unconditional loyalty, courage in the face of impossible circumstances and the surprise that things are never as scary as you make them out to be, even bullies. A young boy, Barney, isn't very popular as a human as wishes that he could be a cat - as Leggi tutto
I love Matt Haig. Full stop. And I admire that he does such different things. This is more overtly a kids' book than most of his other work (a lot of it is or should be recognised as crossover) but I think is a terrific example of 'all ages' storytelling. Plus fabulously wonky illustrations by Pete
This book is as adorable as you'd expect from the title! Fun adventure story about a boy who's not very happy with himself and would rather become a cat. Some of the characters were a bit flat but otherwise a very enjoyable read.
It was as if this book was written for my 8 year old son who for several years now has tried to convince us that he is a cat. This book explains a lot that’s for sure.
