The Wolf Wilder

Winston and the Marmalade Cat

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.

Likes beautifully developed characters who feel like your friends.
Loves how the underdog can keep going, no matter what.
Wants a long book, but is building up the stamina. The book is split into 3 parts so readers don't have to read it in one.
