The owner of Tiddles and Monty has the most marvellous thing to show them.  

A cake, with extra chocolate and bonbons too! Delicious! 

She knows she can trust her dear little cats to look after it for a moment… but when she returns the cake is GONE! 

Just WHO could the culprit be? Surely it couldn’t be her own darling sweet little Monty

Find out in Oh Monty!, a story packed with mischievous humour and plenty of drama!  


Susannah Lloyd is the author of The Terribly Friendly Fox, illustrated by Ellie Snowdon, and This Book Can Read Your Mind, illustrated by Jacob Grant.

She loves reading stories to her two sons above all things, and picture book sections in libraries and book shops are her happy place.


ABOUT THE Illustrator

Nici Gregory started illustrating whilst still in primary school, drawing in the margins of her exercise books.  After studying graphic design in Hamburg, Germany, she went on to work as an in-house illustrator for a marketing firm. She now works on creating animal characters for children full-time.



'With his oversized, ping-pong ball eyes and over-the-top acting, there’s something rather delicious about Monty’s absolute villainy ... Gregory’s illustrations have a brilliant zany energy as the cats hurtle around the pages, clawing at cakes, plates and each other'

The Observer

'The genius of this lively, engaging picture book lies in the superbly clever telling of the story ... The cats themselves are brought brilliantly to life by illustrator, Nici Gregory. These are cats with huge attitudes, characterful rather than cutesy, drawn with elegant lines as befits their pampered status and given completely hilarious facial expressions. The high-energy illustrations capture the drama of the storyline perfectly'

Armadillo magazine

‘An amusing tale of temptation, favouritism and mis-placed trust’

Creative Steps magazine

'With hilarious images by Nici Gregory, this funny story is full of naughtiness! But behind the hilarity are also some great discussion points on fairness, favouritism, and taking the rap for something you haven’t done!'

Discover Children's Books

'Younger readers will utterly love hearing it … and I am super excited to enjoy this book all over again, with the little ones interacting as we go along.'

Book Bound

'If you love a cat caper (or cake!) then this is the book for you! … The fantastic expressions on the cat's faces will make you laugh out loud'

Mrs Brown's Book Box

'Grabs the reader’s attention and actively encourages them to read between the lines ... Hilarious illustrations ... My children and I absolutely LOVE this book!'

Stories for Little Ones

Susannah Lloyd does dramatic irony and humour so brilliantly in her books… Her words are brought deliciously to life here by Nici Gregory. I adore the colour palette, which appears lifted directly from the display cabinets of a Pâtisserie and lends a decadent, refined air to the book'

Little Literary Society

'An absolutely gorgeous confection of a picturebook'
