Rhys's teacher, Mr Shakespeare, wants him to write a story. But is it all as it seems? But it's no easy task ? especially when he's got writer's block and doesn't get along with his teacher. Throw in class pest, Alex, and a time out, and he's got a recipe for disaster. Inspiration comes from an unexpected source, and the story of a cricket match, a new neighbour, and an annoying cat becomes a winner. CAT'astrophe is a fun and entertaining read that I'm sure would be enjoyed by young boys. This story is along the same lines as the Just books and Captain Underpants series: crazy, funny and really silly ? everything a nine'yearold boy loves in a book.
