"The Black Cat" is one of the titles in Allan Ahlberg's iconic children's picture book series about skeletons, "Funnybones". Despite being set in a dark dark house, this brightly coloured book is perfect for early readers! The skeleton friends go sledging - whee! And crashing - bang! They can't see their bones in the white snow but they can see a black cat ...until she slips into their dark, dark cellar. "There can be few families in the British Isles who do not possess at least one well-thumbed Ahlberg". ("Independent on Sunday").
