The Tip-Tap Dancing Cat

With the rise in popularity of Strictly, and with dancers regularly appearing on BGT and other TV talent shows, dancing is a hugely popular subject.  This lovely picture book from Joanna Boyle, brings the love of dance to little ones as they follow the secret life of Oscar the Cat, as he fox-trots, mambos and taps his way through the pages!

With wonderful illustrations that capture the various dance styles perfectly, each genre of dance is shown in all its glory as Oscar dances himself to fame.  The back of the book has a brilliant illustrated glossary, explaining each dance in a child-friendly and fun way.  It's a great introduction to all the different styles of dance.

At the end of the book, as Oscar settles down for a nap, we wonder to ourselves just what do our own pets get up to when our backs are turned!

For little ones who love to dance, this energetic picture book will make them want to get on their dancing shoes and join in with Oscar 'The Tip-Tap Dancing Cat'!

    Anything which involves dancing will be perfect for Freddy because he really is a little mover and watching his dance routines is always a pleasure. It was lovely to hear Freddy talking and obviously enjoying the books. Oscar the Cat really sounds a great character. xxxxxxx
