The Nine Lives of Aristotle


The Nine Lives of Aristotle

by Dick King-Smith

illustrated by Bob Graham

October 2017

This little book caught my eye when I was at the library with my boys. I love children’s books and thought this would be cute. It certainly was. Aristotle is a kitten who gets adopted by a witch named Bella Donna and gets into all sorts of mischief! Slowly, he loses eight of his nine lives because of his curiosity, from falling down a chimney to tumbling into the river.


Eventually, Aristotle learns his lesson and grows up to be a responsible, respectable witches cat. He helps Bella Donna make potions to heal sick children and is a wonderful companion for her. It is a very sweet book!


Summing it up: I recommend this adorable little book!

Best, Abbey
