Toto is no ordinary cat, and she can’t wait for you to join her on her SECOND ninja adventure! From one of the UK’s best-loved broadcasters, purrfect for fans of The Aristocats, The Secret Life of Pets and Atticus Claw Breaks the Law.
Toto, the amazing ninja cat, is back and cooler than ever! Toto is almost blind, but that doesn’t stop her having brilliant adventures.
Something CAT-ASTROPHIC has happened: ALL the cheese in the world has been stolen. Join Toto, her brother Silver and their best-friend Catface on a secret mission to save the day. Toto is going to need all her ninja skills to defeat the fur-midable cheese thief …
Ideal for reading aloud or for children to curl up with and read alone, the story features brilliant black and white illustrations throughout. With gentle themes of friendship, inclusivity and winning in the face of adversity, this is a hilarious must-read for all animal-loving kids!
Dermot says: ‘The idea for Toto first came to me when my wife and I rescued two stray cats from an olive grove in Italy. One of them, Toto, has been blind from birth, but we quickly realised she had ninja-like reactions. Like a lot of cat owners (or cat servants), we like to imagine our pets having secret lives when we’re out or asleep. So before I knew it I was writing about Toto and her brother Silver’s nocturnal adventures around London. I really hope that children who pick it up enjoy reading the adventures of our little Italian underdog (cat).’
Have you seen Toto’s other adventures? The Great Snake Escape and The Superstar Catastrophe are out now, and make perfect Christmas gifts for young readers.

Aly Ward from Hawkinge Primary School, Kent takes a look at Daily Times Tables Teasers Ages 5-7 for us.
The innovative nature of the resource
There are many resources that contain such ideas as this but I have yet to see them collected together is one resource and this makes it more useful. I have not seen any maths resources set out under the learning styles. The impact on learning and the work of the teacher in the classroom, to what extent and in which areas I think that this will be a useful resource as the activities can be quickly administered without too much preparation time. The teaching of tables is often a difficult thing especially for less able pupils and they often dislike maths. This is a good way to make it fun and adapted to meet those pupils who are not auditory learners (as that is the most common way for tables to be taught)
How the resource supports or enhances the everyday life or work of teachers, pupils or school
All pupils need to learn their tables as it is an integral part of maths. I think that teachers will probably try some of the games and stick to their (and the pupils) favourites. There is such a big choice they there is something for everyone. For those who need more practise than others they will be able to try many different activities and this should stop the practise from becoming stale. They could even be suggested as homework activities.
Cost effectiveness in terms of educational aims and results – not just price.
There are many commercially available ways to teach tables and these can be fun e.g. Maths Whizz but this shows that it can be more cost effective to do it yourself. With interactive whiteboards teachers can adapt these ideas and make their own resources. Initially it seems expensive for a fairly thin book but when you realise how many activities are contained then it seems value for money.
