I have exhausted Google and still can't find it. It was a children's book that I read probably in the late 1980s/early 1990s about a cat that died, and his owner (a little boy I think) was sad. I think he actually says "he's gone now, and I'm sad about that" or something like that. Anyway, the boy comes across the whole neighbourhood's cats in mourning and comes to find out that actually, the cat led a whole secret double life in the night-time and was some sort of famous singer cat. It is driving me insane, WHAT WAS IT CALLED?!
I remember this, for some reason it massively disturbed me but I could never figure out why
I've also been hammering google, searching for a book about a farmer who has a corn pipe, I think he's a bear? There's a tug boat in the book too but given that I can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday.... I've been searching for about 4 years now, on and off whenever something reminds me about it but I'm none the wiser
allofthelights Oh my go OP, I think this is the book I have been trying to remember for the last 5 years or so and I can not find it anywhere on Google. My mum can't remember what it's called either. This is so weird! I clicked on your post thinking, imagine it was the same book I've been trying to remember 😂
