The Larry Diaries: Downing Street - the first 100 days

review by Maryom

No 10 Downing Street is being over-run by rats - not the press or the Opposition but the small, furry, not-remotely-cute kind. Join Larry the Cat as he takes on his new role as official Rat Catcher to the Prime Minister. His unique position gives him ample opportunity to eavesdrop on cabinet meetings, foreign government delegations and what goes on in the Camerons' private flat. After life on the streets, Larry seems to have landed himself a nice cushy place - if only he can find a way to deal with the rats!

The Larry Diaries are an amusing behind-the-scenes look at life at No 10 from the smallest member of staff. A little bit of an East-end 'bruiser', whether he's lounging in Sam Cam's lingerie drawer or trying to broker a deal with the rats, Larry has his own 'take' on everything. It's a light-hearted read rather than full-scale political satire of, say, Have I Got News For You or Mock The Week and perhaps because of it likely to appeal to a wider spectrum of readers, from cat-lovers to people-watchers.

If you've ever wondered what life is REALLY like behind that famous front-door this is your chance to find out!
