Doris Morris ... and the Invasion of the Neighbor by Janet KellySeries: Doris Morris #1
Publisher: Bobaloo Books
Publication Date: March 10, 2016
Doris Morris is the first in a series of beautifully illustrated children's books about a cat, called Doris, and what she gets up to with her family.
In the first of the series, The Invasion of The Neighbours, she has to deal with the bullying behaviour of Gangsta and Lizzie who keep coming in through Doris's cat flap when the family are out, and making a mess so that Doris gets into trouble. When Amy and Ted, the children, find out, they go out of their way to put things right - with a fabulous happy ending.
This book is too adorable - it is about a cat named Doris who is fuzzy and dirty and a typical house cat. She can be temperamental but the kids love her and she has it pretty good in the Morris household. When two neighborhood cats start coming in and messing up her house and her happiness the children in the house help her make it all right.
The lesson at the end of this rhyming book is a very cute one - family is always there for you and I loved the vibrant illustrations throughout. Doris is a huge purple fluff of a cat in most the images and I loved the color pallet. I think that kids and parents will really enjoy reading this book together.
