"We enjoyed reading this, it's very sweet and charming." RANDOM HOUSE CHILDREN'S BOOKS
"An entertaining and enjoyable little story, with a great plot and endearing well-drawn characters." AWESOME INDIES
"Ginger the Gangster Cat is light-hearted and humorous, with an underlying tongue-in-cheek satirical view of life. A feline 'Get Carter', with attitude, springs to mind.' HARPER COLLINS
"This is a book chock-full of charm, humour, sensitivity and comic capers. Throughout the story, there is a very clever interweaving of down-to-earth sit-com moments with more weighty, poignant situations. The fact that these never clash are a testament to the author's writing skill." PENPRESS
"Perfect to read to children of any age and then sneak away and read it yourself."
"My kids (6 and 8) were literally roaring with laughter as I read this to them at bed time."
"Ginger and his beloved little friend, Sparky, are two of the most endearing cat characters I've ever come across - and I've been enjoying animal stories for over fifty years, so that's saying a lot. Although this posts as a story for children, I found it to be an exceptional book for any age. Buy it, read it, you'll love it!"
