When Cats Go WrongBook - 2004
Based on a song written by Canadian folk artist Norm Hacking, When Cats Go Wrong is a lighthearted story about life with a mischievous cat. A boy comes across a stray cat on the street and brings him home to his mother. Though the mother has reservations, she reluctantly agrees to keep him.Despite the boy's assurances, the cat is nothing but trouble. Left alone, he dips his paws into the goldfish bowl, sharpens his claws on the couch and snacks on the butter. One day, the boy rushes home to tidy up before his mom gets home and is surprised to find she's already there. And he's even more surprised to learn that his "reluctant" mother doesn't seem to mind this naughty kitty after all.Also included is a CD single recording performed by Norm Hacking of the song that inspired the book. Hacking was nominated for a 2004 Canadian Independent Music Award."Hacking's songs capture a very real slice of life ... Norm Hacking is a first class song craftsman." -Kingston Whig-Standard
