Very clever, quite charming and exactly right for the style of the story and its intended age group.

Author John W. Paull takes inspiration from his real-life tabby cat in his new illustrated children’s book, “The Dog and The Pram - A Jimmy James Story” (published by Trafford Publishing).

Jimmy James, a golden tabby cat, is a direct descendant of the legendary feral cat known as Maisie of Fleet Street, whom the Daily Express dubbed “the cat that Hitler couldn’t bomb.” Jimmy James is a worthy successor, and his life is filled with excitement and adventure.

Through simple, singsong text and colorful pictures, “The Dog and The Pram - A Jimmy James Story” recounts one of Jimmy James’ many adventures and will especially appeal to children who enjoy animal stories. The book has been enjoyed by 4- and 5-year-olds in an ethnically mixed North London primary school, and the illustrations by 12-year-old Chelsea Chloe Leigh Western have been described by readers as “very clever, quite charming and exactly right for the style of the story and its intended age group.”
