This children’s book is a real page turner. It is the story of a little cat who lives with his family in a deserted shed. They catch rats to survive. But Oi is mischievous and loves to leave the safety of the courtyard. He wants to explore the world. After all the warnings from his mother and his brothers, he continues to explore. He barely survives the danger of being run over, but he still goes out every day. When he gets lost, a kind woman takes him home so he can eat the rats in his backyard.

Oi meets the inner cat and they become friends. He barely survives there killing some rats outside. His friend helps him get back to his family in a garbage truck.
This book is very well written and when you hear Oi’s voice, you feel like you are there with him as he goes through his adventures. The illustrations are perfect and the colors and movement superb. Children will love Oi the cat’s expressions and will want this book read to them many times.
