The play on words in the title of this picture book is a delight. The three kittens inside are cats, and as they are all ‘copy cats’ the reference is just right. Wherever Anna goes, Bella follows. She thinks Anna is the bee’s knees, and wants to do everything Anna does, but she often isn’t very good at being a ballerina or a pirate, and when they play princesses and there is only one crown, Anna is cross and goes away all ‘huffy puffy’. ‘Stop copying me,’ she shouts! Bella is lonely, but finds a skipping rope and with lots of practice, becomes good at skipping. Enter Chloe, the third kitten, who finds Bella’s talent fascinating and wants to copy her. Bella is more than willing to share, and soon both kittens are skipping happily. Then, of course, Anna returns… The story is a good one about sharing, about being a good friend, and about letting your friends be themselves. The illustrations are fun, full of colour – even the kittens are colours no kitten ever was – and the front cover has lots of shiny bits that children will love. There is also a smart-phone QR code that you can scan to get the story read aloud. Good fun!
