Verity's old tabby cat Mabel might not be quite as lively as she used to be and yes, she smells a bit and doesn't always make it to the litter tray on time, but she really loves her. More importantly, Mabel once belonged to Verity's mum - not that Verity actually ever knew her mum because she died. She really doesn't mind too much about not having a mum, apart from when she goes to visit her grave, which makes her think about being in the ground with a head full of worms. So, when Mabel dies, Verity goes to extraordinary lengths to preserve her in the style of the ancient Egyptians.

The simply sensational Jacqueline Wilson strikes hard and fast with this superb story of a feisty little girl coping with the death of a much-loved pet. But, as usual, the wily Wilson doesn't just leave it there. Instead, she goes on to deliver a graceful, poignant, and barely perceptible exploration of the close-to-the surface emotions of a family who have never truly recovered from the long-ago death of a loved one.

    " This book is great! This little girl has a very, very old cat called Mabel. But at school she is learning about the egyptions and how to rap up a mummy. one day the little girl finds her cat dead in her closet! so she wants to rap him up as a mummy. The little girl didn't take out Mabel's organs (she thought that it would be too gross. wouldn't you?) THen when she came downstairs, her Grandmother smelled her, and asked her where she had been!!!! Then she got into trouble for wrapping up a dead cat like a mummy!!!! "

    " OK, so every review tells a little about what happens in the book. What a spoiler. I choose to write my opinion on the book instead. It's been a while since I've read this, but I remember how much I felt for the character Verity, on the situation with her cat. "

    " I couldn't imagine how it looks like if a cat became a amateure mummy (this phrase did not exist, I create it just now). But overall, just like another Jacq, her works are always became my fave. "

    " I never really understood how this girl felt till I got my own cat, and then I finally felt I could relate. I think this one's a good one for young children (Not too young) to help them deal with the subject of minute loss, possibly of pets or lesser loved items. "
