Description

Her best-loved books include the highly acclaimed Noughts and Crosses sequence and Pig Heart Boy, which also became a major BBC TV series. Malorie Blackman mixes comedy with a moral message in this sparky tale of Ellie whose rude, disagreeable behaviour at Grandma’s house leads witchy Grandma to label her a brat and cast a spell on her. In 2005, Malorie was honoured with the Eleanor Farjeon Award in recognition of her distinguished contribution to the world of children's books. A cautionary tale of brats, cats and a little bit of magic from much-loved and bestselling author Malorie Blackman, particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant or dyslexic readers aged 8+.

It was such a pleasure to meet you both, and I really appreciated how smoothly and professionally you ran everything. It’s a fantastic independent book seller that will actually be responsive and select appropriate books for you. Ellie is horrified at being a cat but grandma tells her that the only way she can be turned back into a human is to find her lost wedding ring. Your selection was perfect for our children and what really made the difference was your ability to engage with each child, discuss their interests and help them to choose a suitable book based on your extensive knowledge of the books you were selling.Ellie the Cat is no ordinary novel about a cat, it’s about friendship and understanding and had a nice twist in the tale. ISBN: 9781781128244 Author: Blackman, Malorie Publisher: Barrington Stoke Publication Date: 15th January 2019 Imprint: Barrington Stoke Cover: Paperback Dewey: 823. So with a little bit of magic and some help from Jolly the cat, Grandma’s going to make sure that Ellie changes her ways. Published by Barrington Stoke, on cream paper in a dyslexia friendly font, this is pitched to appeal to KS2 children with a younger reading age. Her unhappiness instead of being obvious to adults is seen as bad behaviour and is considered a "brat " rather than seeing the real problem she has.

So with a little bit of magic and some help from Jolly the cat, Grandma's going to make sure that Ellie changes her ways. Jolly the cat is seen as a very well behaved feline by grandma so she is very content at being changed into a girl. Ellie is the rudest, most spoilt child her grandma has ever met and it’s time that she learnt a lesson!

There was just the right amount of choice to suit everyone without being overwhelming and I received comments from parents and staff about the quality of books offered compared to previous sales which have always been based around current crazes and well known celebrity authors. When she’s turned into a cat, we get to see Ellie for who she really is behind the sadness of missing her dad, while she’s given the chance to make some unusual new friends and ultimately find a place to belong. Ellie discovers the importance of kindness and friendship and the satisfying ending resolves the family problems that lead to her challenging behaviour.
