Review by Stacey

Burt the Airport Cat is a children’s picture book by author Christine Henry who has painted all the illustrations in watercolours to go with her story.

The book, as you might have guessed, features a black cat called Burt who is going to Hampshire, England with his family flying from Vancouver, Canada.

Whilst waiting in his crate at the airport Burt becomes scared and managed to escape from his ‘prison’ and runs amok.

Whilst running through different parts of the airport, inside and out, he meets lots of new friends, both animal and human who talk to him and help him to not be scared and find his way back to the plane and his family.

The story is really good fun and heartwarming at the same time. Burt is an adorable cat who finds himself in a scary situation and tries his best to get back to his owners.

I can see children loving this adventurous book and falling in love with Burt too. I now can’t wait to see what Burt gets up to next in further stories.

Christine Henry lives in Vancouver, Canada, with her husband, son, a police drop-out shepherd and two attack cats. The family lives on the edge of a thriving old-growth forest with abundant wildlife. There she gets her inspiration for her art projects and children’s stories.

Ms Henry discovered her love for painting when she joined an adult painting group. Storytelling began at motherhood, recounting lighthearted stories of family adventures, fairies, animals and especially cats to her then-young son. Thus began the story of Burt, the elusive black cat, combined with her own whimsical illustrations.
