Children’s Fiction: Ages 7-9
A moment ago, I was happily napping on the windowsill in the sunshine, dreaming I was flying through the air, catching sparrows in my claws.
Now I’m awake. Georgie woke me. I wouldn’t do that to her.
A popular middle-grade writer moves to chapter books (ages 7-9) with this humorous tale about a cat that makes Grumpy Cat seem cheerful. Perfect for fans of Geronimo Stilton and Dog Diaries.
Hissy Fitz lives with some two-legged creatures who are destined to serve him in every possible way and understand his every whim. Sadly, these creatures are sorely lacking in their skills. For one thing–they touch him when they want to touch him. Don’t they know that the two-legged are there for him to touch when he wants to–meaning when he wants food? Petting wakes him up! They speak to him–don’t they know the two-legged should be seen–so Hissy knows where to order food–and not heard! It’s becoming intolerable. What is this irascible cat to do?

Review: This is a review from my son, who is 8. This is his first review on my site and he is super excited to be able to review chapter books on Genuine Jenn!
My favourite character is Hissy because in the story he took a girls shoe! Hissy is a cat and the story is all about Hissy. Hissy got sea sick on the boat Sid lives in, who is another cat. Sid is one of Hissy's friends. She lives on a dock. Her person is a fisherman but she says he's not her person. Sid works to catch mice. I felt like I was in the story. It was really well written for me to feel that way. The book was really good and funny. I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars!
My son could not stop talking about this book. He explained all about the characters and what they were doing and also how he felt he was there with them. He loved it and finished it in a couple sittings over the Christmas break. I love that the author was able to draw in my sons attention with this story and had him hooked from the first page.
