The Old Tom Series


by Leigh Hobbs (Author)

Book Cover for the Old Tom Series
Old Tom is a rebellious but well-meaning cat, much-loved by his owner, Angela Throgmorton, and young readers, alike. This series of hilarious chapter books recount Old Tom's adventures, his outrageously bad behavior, and his honest but ill-fated attempts to be good. The personality of Old Tom, and the emotions of Angela, and the other characters in the stories, are accurately conveyed through Leigh Hobb's vibrant and colourful illustrations. Note: The more recent titles in this series are designed for even younger readers (4+). Please check the age guides on individual books.
