catboy review :)

 This book is about a boy named Taylor and his friend Simon.  They really like cats and want to save a cat colony. They met a security guard from India who's name is Mr. Singh.  They learned that sometimes multicultural people have come to Canada for a better life.  Taylor's school is also full of students from all over the world.  We all come from different places and speak different languages just like at Taylor's school.  by Rebeca

Catboy Review

I think cat boy is a really good book because it is more than just a story, it tells about culture in Toronto. 

I  liked the end of cat boy because Taylor gets one of Hunter's kittens, even though I would really have liked an epilogue at the end that tells about Taylor and his kitten a little older in the future.

Catboy book review

The book Catboy is a book by Eric Walters. This book is about a boy named Taylor who moved to Toronto and got into and adventure that no one would see coming. My thought on this book is that this book is great and it shows the multiculturalism of Toronto with a great story. the one thing i don't like about the book is the name that Eric Walters gave the last kitten that Hunter gave Taylor, come on Eric Walters its the last cat they name and the last sentence have a little imagination.

Catboy book review, by Gabrielle Tremblay
The story “Catboy” is all about a boy who loves cats but wait it doesn’t stop there! Taylor (Catboy) just moved to Toronto from his small home town where he grew up. He made a few friends including a smart, Korean boy named Simon. Taylor and Simon are walking home one evening and Simon says he knows a shortcut. Who is Taylor to say Simon is lying? He barely knows the city yet. In the shortcut they pass by a junkyard, where Taylor spots some cats. He and Simon get closer to the cats and just watch them as they go around in the junkyard, three older kids bump into them and start throwing stones at the cats. Taylor tries to defend the cats but they get mean to him and Simon. Taylor and Simon become friends with the security guards of the junkyard. The security guard lets them come in regularly to feed and stay with the cats but what will happen to the cats when the owner of the property want sot build condominiums? Taylor, Simon and Mr. Singh (the security guard) look for ideas to save the cats everywhere and finally Taylor, Simon and their friends from school find a way to save he cats. Taylor visits Dr.Reynolds (a vet) to ask him if he has traps and cages for the cats. Why? Taylor's clever plan was to trap and cage the cats and bring them to a new community of cats on the other side of the city! Will Taylor and his friends be able to pull it off? Find out more and how Catboy got his name in this great read!
