Views and CommentsEdit

CBBC has done a book club report on it, quoting it as a "brilliant read". People have been allowed to comment on the book report (written by Wikipedia:Katie Thistleton) and so far there has been over 300 comments. The Guardian newspaper has quoted on it as well. However, Kat Winter (the author of the novel) has given it an 8.5 out of ten, commenting on the fact "the stories were too short, she wanted to find out more.


For every copy of Paws and Whiskers sold, a small amount will go to the Wikipedia:Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. It is also the place Jacqueline got her cats, Jacob and Lily. Battersea Dogs and Cats are a animal Wikipedia:charity who specialise in abandoned cats and dogs and look for foster, or permanent, owners. They also tour around different schools, showing them about animals. They also arrived at Jacqueline's book signing event for Paws and Whiskers.
