Summary

Tuck and Ginger are two cats who get on each other's nerves. But they need to pause the claws if they’re to escape from the high-rise apartment where they are trapped. And escape they must, for their kidnappers – Rodney and Janice Burringo – are warty wicked witches who want to use Tuck and Ginger’s body parts to build the best witches’ cat in the world: a black Purrari.
Tuck, who’s a few granules short of a litter-tray, and Ginger, a cynical street fighter gone to seed, must overcome their differences and survive a list of unlikely adventures if they’re to escape alive from the beastly Burringos and their toxic gases before it’s too late.

An awesome audio book that made us laugh out loud!

What made the experience of listening to Cats on the Run the most enjoyable?

The characters really come to life in this new audio book, wonderfully voiced by super talent Deborah Wiseman. The witches' dastardly plans sound all the more gruesome; the various cat characters take on their own personas, as they fight to stay one step ahead of the evil Burringos. This is a nicely-paced story, with lots of quirky details and believable characters.

What other book might you compare Cats on the Run to, and why?

There is something quite Roald Dahl about some of the alliteration and whacky words.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The showdown at the end between Rodney and Janice and the four cats.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

If you don't like cats you just haven't met the right one.

Any additional comments?

This would be a wonderful audio book for a long road trip. In addition, there is also some humor hidden in the story that only parents / adults will get. I'd recommend it for ages 8 upwards.

A hilarious tale of mischievous animals

What did you like most about Cats on the Run?

I loved the variety of the characters, the hilarious accents and funny voices from the narrator
as well as the use of alliteration and rhyming words.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really enjoyed listening to the character of Ginger with her six bellies and ability to meow in lots of languages. She really made me laugh out loud!

Which character – as performed by Deborah Wiseman – was your favourite?

My favourite character is Juan Carlos the Spanish talking toad!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think overall this book is very cleverly written and narrated. It is an easy listen for parents and children to enjoy together, particularly teaching children lessons throughout e.g. waiting for the light signals to cross the road.

Any additional comments?

I will definitely be listening to this book again and will be bringing it for our upcoming family road trip! Meow.

Absolutely Hilarious and Entertaining!!

What made the experience of listening to Cats on the Run the most enjoyable?

Oh, man...so many things did but I would have to say that the narrator was absolutely brilliant and the characters, story line as a whole, and most especially the spot-on humor! I look forward to the many times my grandchildren and I will re-listen to this amazing book that I consider this one of my top 5 on my list, and as an AVID listener I have literally thousands of audio books. This one is a WINNER!!

What did you like best about this story?

Every single thing--cover to cover--this book is 100% fun, entertaining, and just a HUGE slice of AWESOME!! If I had to spend 5 credits to purchase this audio book, I would do it in a heartbeat because it is just THAT good!

What about Deborah Wiseman’s performance did you like?

Deborah Wiseman did an amazing job in her portrayal of the characters. I mean, not too many people can pull off that high-pitched, screeching "Rooodneeeeyyyy!!"

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed and laughed along with my two grandchildren (ages 2 and 4) and have re-listened to it several times and have formed our own "inside jokes" together that relate directly to the book. All three of us just love to call each other from the other side of the house going Rooodneeeeyyyy!! all the time and it gets us to laughing together and has been a GREAT bonding experience for us! I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend you spend the credit to purchase this amazing audiobook that is entertaining for readers of all ages. If you are having a bad day, listen to this and it can easily put a smile on your face and laughter in your heart.

Any additional comments?

Ged Gillian has now become one of my top 5 favorite authors, and I can't WAIT for more...

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I listened to the complete audio book with no persuasion or influence to give either a positive or negative review. The review I have posted is my honest and unbiased opinion.

Clever, funny story for the whole family

Looking for the perfect road trip audiobook for the family? Cats on the Run might be just the thing! This is a hilarious, clever story full of tongue twisters, rhymes, witches, and cats that is fun for adults and kids, as long as no one is too bothered by potty humor, fart jokes, and cannibalistic witches. The narrator does a terrific job presenting an entertaining performance of the book.
