Review by School Library Journal Reviews

K-Gr 2—These charming British imports introduce children to Ava and her invisible cat, the adorable Squishy McFluff. The first book tells the story of Ava playing outside and "finding" the cat in the vegetable garden. The two play happily together, and Ava brings Squishy home and introduces him to her mother. Mummy plays along at first, pretending to see the cat, until Squishy's antics get out of control. Mummy tries to get rid of Squishy but to no avail. Eventually, Ava assures her mother that Squishy will learn to behave, and Mummy agrees to let him stay. In the second book, Squishy's exploits continue, this time at the grocery story—to Mummy's great consternation. Children will giggle at Squishy's misadventures and want to read more. VERDICT Rhyming text and simple, three-color illustrations make this a thumbs-up choice for early chapter readers.—Kathy Kirchoefer, Henderson County Public Library, NC Copyright 2017 School Library Journal.

Readers will wish that they had a kitty to blame their misdeeds on when they've acted…naughty." - Kirkus ReviewsThis playful early chapter book will attract emergent readers with its rhyming text, widely spaced lines, and sweet red-and-blue illustrations. – BooklistWhen Ava gets dragged to the supermarket with her mom, her invisible cat Squishy McFluff can't resist coming along, with hilarious, chaotic and surprising results!

Told in full color throughout, this is the perfect stepping stone from picture books to older fiction.
