Publisher's Summary

"It wasn't that Sugieh was particularly wicked. It was just that she was a Siamese." Animal lovers Doreen Tovey and her husband acquire their first Siamese kitten to rid themselves of an invasion of mice. But Sugieh is not just any cat. She's an actress, a prima donna, an iron hand in a delicate, blue-pointed glove. Sugieh quickly establishes herself as queen of the house. First published over forty years ago, this warm, witty and moving story has never gone out of style; a truly enjoyable read for anyone who's ever been owned by a cat. Doreen Tovey has written over a dozen books, which have sold over 100,000 copies in eight countries.

Old fashioned charm

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is a cat lovers book but was written in another email. It might appeal to those who feel nostalgic for the post war period.

Would you be willing to try another book from Doreen Tovey? Why or why not?

No....the mini stories that made up this book are sweet, but after one or two they become a bit repetitive and loose some of their charm. One book is enough.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narration was a bit fast on "normal speed" and the narrators voice is a slightly irritating high pitched one, and this did detract a little.
