My Cat Likes to hide in Boxes
  • My Cat Likes to hide in Boxes

  • Cats from many different countries may like to do all kinds of strange and exotic things like fly aeroplanes, or sing and dance, or even play the violin - but my cat, an ordinary round-the-house cat, likes to hide in boxes . . .

    Very young children will love joining in with this fun rhyming story that is also just right for beginner readers. The lively illustrations by Hairy Maclary creator Lynley Dodd are sure to appeal to cat lovers of all ages.

Eve Sutton was born and raised in England and moved to New Zealand as an adult. She worked as a primary school teacher and as a Braille transcriber before writing her critically acclaimed children's books. Of these, My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes was the only picture book, and a celebrated partnership with her cousin by marriage, Lynley Dodd. First published in 1974, My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes won the Esther Glen Award in 1975.
