Review of Poppy Cat: Birthday Treasure and The Mystery Trail by Lara Jones

Poppy Cat Birthday Treasure and The Mystery Trail are part of a collection of books about Poppy Cat. There is also a TV series on Nick JR and Poppy Cat can be found at

Birthday Treasure finds Poppy Cat on her birthday where she is given lots of lovely presents by her friends including a treasure map that takes her on an adventure in a hot air balloon into the mystery jungle.

The Mystery Trails find Poppy Cat and her friends on the mystery of Owl’s disappearing book complete with their own detective kit. The adventure takes them on a trail to the purple pine forest.

Poppy Cat is illustrated with bold bright colours with the characters drawn in a simple way and Poppy Cat herself has a lovely beaming smile. My 2 children love watching Poppy Cat on the television so were very excited when these books arrived and they read them straight away. As the books are simply written they are ideal for reading aloud with your children as well as early reader books.
