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.

Ellie soon realises that a girl trapped in a cat’s body needs some help and that she must learn some manners and make some friends fast.

In a dyslexia-friendly format, this is a magical and gently comic tale of friendship and thinking of others. 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. It’s all well and good grandma turning Ellie into a cat but grandma soon knows she has made a mistake in losing her temper; the switch bodies spell has a time limit - if Ellie doesn't find the ring in a day, she will stay a cat forever!

Ellie discovers that she has switched bodies with Jolly the cat and has only one day to find Grandma’s lost ring otherwise she will remain a cat forever. Inspired by traditional Middle Eastern tales, this captivating adventure is full of magic, mystery and danger. Yesterday a parent came over to tell me how impressed she was by the book fair and that you did a fabulous job of selling the books to the children first. The inter-generational relationship between Ellie and her Grandma develops into something quite heart-warming too.Your words, like your reviews, bring books to life and give them a voice before the front cover is even turned. It’s a fantastic independent book seller that will actually be responsive and select appropriate books for you. Tom's scrapbooks are always fascinating, full of photographs, notes and snippets of history that inspire his books, and this one is no different! 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. The grandma does her best to make Ellie feel at home but Ellie's bad behaviour has her turn Ellie into a cat.

This experience has been fantastic primarily for the children, the school and also for me (professionally). Grandma’s made it clear that if Ellie doesn’t succeed in her challenge, she and Jolly the cat will change places for good! Malorie Blackman’s excellent story entertains with humour, perfectly matched with Matt Robinson’s illustrations which superbly bring Ellie and her animal chums to life.As she starts to make friends with the other animals in the house, the mice and the spiders, Ellie starts to learn how to be a good friend. 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+. Ellie is the rudest, most spoilt child her grandma has ever met and it’s time that she learnt a lesson! Ellie discovers the importance of kindness and friendship and the satisfying ending resolves the family problems that lead to her challenging behaviour.

An amusing story with a good message about being nice to other people, it had me giggling aloud several times. She has been awarded numerous prizes for her work, including the Red House Children’s Book Award, and has also been shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. Bronnie is so lovely with the boys and we also felt that having a man enthusing about the books set a great example.With the help of a brave mouse and a resourceful spider, Ellie succeeds in finding the ring, defeating the machinations of Jolly the cat and convincing her Grandma that she has learned her lesson. Ellie doesn't take to her life as a cat but what she does find is Jolly isn't very well thought of by the other creatures in and around grandma’s house. grndma notices how devious she can be towards her pet cat 'Jolly' so she decides to teach Ellie a lesson she won't forget!
