CHRIST­MAS CAT CHAOS

- BY JU­LIA DON­ALD­SON Good News · Turkey · Macmillan Computer Publishing

I don’t know why they’re

blam­ing me When all I did was climb

a tree And bat a shiny sil­ver ball. How could I know the

tree would fall? And when those silly

lights went out They didn’t have to

scream and shout And turf me out and shut

the door. Now no one loves me

any more. I’m in the kitchen by

my­self. But wait! What’s on that

high-up shelf? A lovely tur­key,

big and fat! How nice! They do still love their cat. TAKEN from Crazy May­on­naisy Mum by Ju­lia don­ald­son, il­lus­trated by Nick Shar­ratt, pub­lished by Macmillan, £5.99. © Ju­lia don­ald­son and Nick Shar­ratt, 2004.
