Madame Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles

Madame Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles - Rupert Kingfisher, Sue Hellard This was a pre-read for my son, who loves cats. I'm not sure this one would appeal to him, but it was a nice, short read for me. Madame Pamplemousse was a fairly complex character for such a short book, although most of the other characters one-dimensional, and I enjoyed the seriously grumpy, one-eyed cat who can use a whisk with verve.
