A review in Kirkus Reviews of Matilda’s Cat wrote “A master of animal countenance, Gravett pairs an expressive cat with a busy kid and winks at the difference between textual and visual message”, and Booktrust wrote that “Gravett’s illustrations in this funny and touching picture book are as delightful as ever.”
