Juliet Nearly a Vet – Cat Show Queen by Rebecca Johnson

Reviewed by Jessica (age 8)

      In this book, Juliet’s Mum is in charge of the cats that board at her Vet clinic when there is a cat show in town. Juliet and her best friend, Chelsea, are so excited and can’t wait to see all the different cats and their owners. The cats have to be prepared beautifully for the show and some of the owners are very particular, so you can imagine the drama that unfolds when something goes wrong before the show.

     I enjoyed this book. My favourite character was Juliet’s best friend, Chelsea, because she is very calm under pressure. Kids who really love cats and animals would like this book.

From the author:
When I was growing up, I was mad about animals. Not just the normal kind like cats, dogs and horses, but anything that moved. The best part of all was that I actually lived next door to a vet! We are still great friends and he's 95 now. One of my fondest memories of growing up is going out in a canoe with my sister and brother after a f lood and ­rescuing animals that were stranded on sticks and twigs and ferrying them to safety. Not every girl I know would be happiest in a canoe full of mice, bugs and the odd green snake, but I'm sure Juliet would!
