Read an exclusive preview of My Life as a Cat by Carlie Sorosiak

This September we’re delighted to be publishing My Life as a Cat – the brand new novel by Carlie Sorosiak, author of the highly-acclaimed, Waterstones Book of the Month, I, Cosmo.

And today we’re incredibly pleased to share a very first look inside the new book – you can read the first three chapters of My Life as a Cat below.

With beautiful writing and a truly unique voice, My Life as a Cat is a heart-warming adventure, reminiscent of E.T and perfect for fans of Flora and Ulysses – a wise, funny, and moving story of what it means to find a family. Here’s a little bit about the book:

Leonard has never had a name. Or a body. Or a best friend. But he is excited to try being a human.

On their three-hundredth-birthday, every alien from Leonard’s home galaxy gets to spend a month in the body of an Earth Creature. Leonard was supposed to become a forest ranger in Yellowstone National Park – but there was a mix-up.

And now he’s stuck as a stray cat.

Luckily for Leonard, he meets a young human called Olive – and together they set out on a journey to find home.

And here’s a look inside the book – read the opening chapters of My Life as a Cat:

My Life as a Cat will be in shops in September – you can pre-order it from Waterstones here, from Hive here, and from Amazon here.
