Scratch the cat has never been so itchy. A flea has hopped into his fur and no matter how much he scratches he can't get rid of it! However, Scratch isn't easily defeated-he has some clever ideas in mind to evict the flea once and for all. But despite his drastic endeavours, including vigorously vacuuming himself, a hideous haircut, and a trip to the carwash, the flea is determined to stay. Will Scratch ever be free of his lousy louse? This enormously entertaining text is the perfect outlet for Korky Paul's wonderful illustrations.
