This is a great next book if your reader likes:


  • Animal stories with a lot of heart as the book's star is little Houdini, the marmalade cat.

  • Historical fiction suitable for young readers or older developing readers. It has interesting detail about WW2 and Winston Churchill masterfully weaved into the story.

  • Detail that builds suspense as the story unfolds.

  • Short chapters with a good size font and wide spacing between lines, but no pictures to break up the text.


Blurb: Nine-year-old Harry is desperate for a pet of his own but working at the local animal rescue centre is the next best thing. One day, he's asked to take a very special birthday present to Chartwell, home of the famous Prime-Minister and animal-lover Winston Churchill. During his visit, Harry learns all about Winston's past and his much-loved pets. Will Harry get to meet Winston Churchill, and will he ever get a pet of his very own?
