This cat is hilarious! I seriously enjoyed his story and laughed out loud through most of it. Take a break from whatever you’re doing and read this book. The author and his wife perfectly convey life from the perspective of a cat with several names, one of them being “Stupid.” Believe me, he is anything but. I won’t spoil the story by giving away more, and I’ll definitely read this one again, especially when I need an infusion of laughter. This book is twenty-eight pages filled with laughter, a family’s love for their pet, and a cat that you can’t help but appreciate.
When I saw this book mentioned in an email I’d recently received and being a cat lover with my dear OH [we’ve got two], I couldn’t help but download it immediately to my PC, and with it being FREE came has a pleasant bonus.
I feel this is a prefect book for all children between the ages of 5 and 8, the girls as well as the boys, especially if they already have a cat as a pet. As these young readers read about the adventures of “Chips” aka “Stupid,” they’ll inevitably begin to think about the different things their own cat has gotten himself/herself involved with, increasing their interest in the rest of the book.
The author and his wife’s decision to use the cat’s POV to tell his story in own words as he views his world and his human owners, although it actually written by someone else [perhaps a dog - - :-)] adds value to the book’s adorability factor.
Mr. Borders gives his readers an unexpected bonus at the end of this story, an excerpt from his “The Little Green Man in the Red Apple Tree.”
For giving me and the other readers of this book the opportunity to see how our own cats might be viewing their world and us, I’m giving this book 5 STARS !!!
I was out of town attending a family wedding and brought my Kindle along. Since this story was relatively short I decided to read it when I got some spare time. What a delight! Written in the first person made it so enjoyable and fun to read. It is great for children. I'm an adult and I enjoyed and laughed a lot. The Adventures Of Stupid The Cat!
As a fellow cat owner/sometimes lover, I found this book to be quite entertaining. Funniest thing, my cat has the name 'Stupid' too. Small world I guess.
This was a comical, anecdotal tale of the day-in-the-life of a cat named Chips. Loved that name by the way. It answers many questions that cat owners ask on a daily basis, but most of all, "What is that cat thinking?"
I read it by myself first, just in case it was geared more toward adults with colorful language. To my pleasant surprise, it was just good, clean fun. I plan to read it to my ten-year-old daughter tonight, as she is the actual owner of our cat. I know she will get a kick out of it.
As an extra treat, this author offered some light-hearted poetry at the end. This book was a quick, delightful read all the way to the end--perfect for a short car ride or lunch break.
