Synopsis- Hissy Fitz is definitely the master of his house. So how come Georgie, the young girl he lives with, can’t seem to tell when he wants to sleep, and talks and pets him nonstop! And the grown male in the house bangs on wood at the worst possible moments – when all Hissy wants to do is sleep and be left alone. And, Zeb, the littlest, is always yelling at and chasing Hissy – well, really anytime, but especiallyย when Hissy wants to sleep! When will this grouchy cat ever get a chance to take a cat-nap in the house of the noisy Fitz family?

What I Thought- This was a cute and funny book. Hissy is the ultimate grumpy cat, not stopping for a second to slice at, growl at, and HISS at the annoying 2 legged creatures that live with him. The story is funny, and brings out the very cat-like personality in Hissy. Hissy is a lazy, fat, grumpy, silver-blue cat. There are some funny illustrations scattered throughout the book. They add humor to the story. This is an excellent choice for young advanced readers who are just becoming independent. Mr. Jennings has written a very well-done story that I enjoyed reading.

I give this book four out of five bookworms.fourbooks

  1. Thanks for reviewing, Erik! I’m always on the lookout for books like this for my son. He is a young advanced reader, but not yet a real independent reader. I’ll put this one on my list.

  3. We all know that cats own us. And it is pointless to attempt understanding. All we can do is to appreciate them. I think ay book about the personality of cats would be funny. Great review Erik!
