Nine Lives of Aristotle, The: Reviewed

Author:Dick King-Smith
Illustrator:Bob Graham
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 8 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Learning to read
Year of publication:2003

Cat barrels through eight of his nine lives and finally settles down.

Might be good for precocious early readers, because the illustrations are cute and the words are not terribly long, but not for sensitive ones, because the cat "dies" frequently as if in a videogame.

Guess the moral of the story is to be very careful or you will die.

Guess I don't really like stories that bash you over the head with their morals.
