Annie Allwaysabout this book: The book is about Squeaky the cat.
Squeaky gets trapped inside of a removal van whilst 'peeing' on an old armchair which belongs to a miserable granny who throws things at the cats and dogs who live nearby.
He gets transported hundreds of miles away from his home and his beloved Sarah who is his 'Keeper', which is the name that humans are called by cats and dogs.
During his long journey home, he meets some great characters, some friendly and some not so friendly. Surprisingly some of these new friends are 'Keepers' and for a cat that has a really low opinion of 'Keepers' even he has to admit that maybe we are not such a lost cause.
Follow his sometimes funny, sometimes sad but never boring adventure as he is reunited with his Sarah and friends.
This book although originally meant to be a young child's story ended up being more for teenagers up to the old aged amongst us.
The writing of the book flowed quite easily and in only took about 3 weeks to write but took that long again for me to get it into a print format which is suitable for publishing.
The cover of the book was easy, because as I was writing the story I was developing a mental picture of Squeaky.
Although I have mentioned that he has a low opinion of 'Keepers', it helps him to forward some great insights into the way humans live and his philosophying is pretty much spot on.

Funny and scaryI'd be worried to death if Squeaky was my cat but he is very clever and it works out Ok for him. Why don't people follow his example and listen to each other. A funny book, is there going to be another one? [by Glamour puss]
Squeaky, Squeaky, Squeaky; you're the catA really good read. The story is full of adventure and is well written. I liked the interaction between Squeaky, his friends and us 'Keepers' (humans). My 15 year old grand daughter is now reading the story and she says; 'so far so good', which is quite a testament from a teenager. Read and enjoy. [by Zac]
Love and loyaltyWhat a super little story. This cat 'Squeaky' has a love hate relationship with humans but what he says is quite true. He is very loving to his owner, 'Sarah' and he his 100% loyal to his friends. During his journey he encounters all sorts of problems but being streetwise he always comes through. He nearly loses his 'Crown Jewels' in one escapade and in another he introduces a scared little kitten to a very grateful 'Keeper'. A really clever and easy book to read. [by Vet]
Squeaky. What a catSqueaky is certainly streetwise but he is also humorous, witty and a great philosopher. His adventure gets him into all types of scrapes and problems - he very nearly loses his 'Crown Jewels' in one such tussle - but he always comes safely through them in the end.
Although he has a poor regard for 'Keepers' (humans), he dearly loves his Keeper who is called Sarah and surprisingly he befriends and gets befriended by several Keepers. He is very loyal to his friends and they return it in bucketful's. A great story and a wonderful read. [by Cragg]
Squeaky; 'THE' catWhat a cat he is; smart, a rascal,loyal and loveable to his friends. Got a bit of a thing with us humans (Keepers), but a lot of what he says is definitely true. A really entertaining and good read. [by Zac]
