Jan Ormerod is one of Audrey's favourite authors. She wrote a series of books based on the relationship between a Dad, his baby and a black and white cat in the '80s. Following on from this she wrote a second series about the same baby and cat, but this time with the very pregnant Mum. They are lovely simple stories, the shortest is told in around 10 words.
I bought these three books off eBay this week. We already have "Sleeping" and "Mum's Home", found within an ailing ex-library story treasury. To my delight the third book is now my favourite in the series: "Making Friends". The Mum is sewing a soft doll for the baby, while baby and cat play alongside her. Just perfect for our household!
