Ten short cat stories for children of all ages. Each has a different scientific theme and the main aim is to help youngsters to enjoy reading and to get them thinking about science. Electronic links make it easy to follow up the main topics. The hero is a cat called Wooffie whose peaceful life is turned upside down when two orphaned kittens join the family – not least because they’re female! Wooffie finds a new role as a father figure in which he draws on his experiences to teach the ‘girls’ as much as he can whilst they are growing up. He’s especially keen on introducing them to a wide range of scientific ideas and getting them to speak good English. Needless to say everything does not always go smoothly but, through all the chaos, Wooffie gradually imparts his wisdom to his young charges as they make their way in life.
