Summary

From the funniest voice in young fiction today, the first in an irresistible series for young readers about imaginary friends in hilarious rhyming text and with adorable illustrations by Ella Okstad.

‘Can you see him? My kitten? Close your eyes tight
His fur is so soft and all silvery white
Imagine him quick! Have you imagined enough?
Oh, good, you can see him! It’s Squishy McFluff!’

When Ava discovers an imaginary cat in the cabbage patch, she knows she’s found a new best friend. Together, Ava and Squishy McFluff get up to all kinds of mischief . . .

Told in full colour throughout, this is the perfect stepping stone from picture books to older fiction. Bright new talent Pip Jones gives a hilarious, quirky twist to everyday experiences for readers aged 5+.

‘A surefire hit.’ Guardian

‘Charming.’ The Times

‘Bound to ensure catisfaction.’ Independent

‘Cleverly bridging the gap between picture books and longer fiction, the lovable Squishy is certain to be a success with under-sevens.’ BookTrust

‘In delightful rhyme reminiscent of Dr Seuss, this charmingly illustrated book is bound to become a bedtime fave.’ Gurgle

Critic Reviews

Jones's rhymes are fluid and easy-going and with Okstad's drawings - I particularly like Squishy's "what, me?" face - this is a charming parable of transition for children aged 4 and older

The Times
Critic Reviews

Cleverly bridging the gap between picture books and longer fiction, the lovable Squishy is certain to be a success with under-sevens - especially those who have ever had an imaginary friend of their own.

Critic Reviews

Pip Jones's big-eyed adventures of Ava and her naughty invisible cat,Squishy McFluff, will be a surefire hit with any kid who's ever devolved responsibility for wickedness or mishap to a sibling or imaginary friend.

Guardian
Critic Reviews

On this evidence his mischief-making, in which he has a more than willing ally in the form of Ava, his young owner, should ensure that he will be purring around for some time. Jones's jaunty verse and Ella Okstad's spirited illustrations are perfect partners in feline crime.

The Irish Times
Critic Reviews

The artistry is spot on - Squishy looks as cute as could be
