This storybook is aimed at the young learner of English and features a cheeky black cat who has six owners, lives in six houses and has six dinners a day. Since each owner believes that Sid is theirs and theirs alone, life is just about perfect - until the day he is found out. This is part of a series of primary teaching material for young learners of English which includes three reading, listening and activity storybooks: "Mrs Smith's Crocodile", "When I Was Your Age" and "Six Dinner Sid". These books contain specially devised questions, puzzles and activities to develop listening or reading skills, depending on the level of the children. These materials should provide a stimulus for interactive speaking skills, whether children can read or not. They also allow for controlled grammar to be reinforced in context. The main features include an accompanying audio cassette, which is available separately. Teacher's notes are also available, in various languages, for using the material - including the answers to the activities and a summary of the key grammar in the story.

Inga began illustrating while she was still at school where she had a constant and irresistible urge to liven up boring passages of Latin with cartoons, likewise physics and chemistry tests. It wasn't until many years later, that she saw illustration as something you could do as a career. She had no formal training but she did have a good grounding in technical drawing and patience and discipline. She wrote and illustrated her first books in Australia and then returned to England. As well as writing her own books, she has illustrated several classics such as Wind in the Willows and The Secret Garden. She can't see a time when she would want to stop making picture books - not altogether. It's one of the most enjoyable things you can do!From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-- In Sid's neighborhood on Aristotle Street, the residents don't talk to one another. So it's simple for Sid, a six-dinner cat, to make six different people think he belongs to them. He works hard for his suppers, with six different names and six types of behavior. But when a cough precipitates six visits to the animal hospital, he is found out by the observant vet. His owners agree to make sure he receives only one meal a day, but since Sid is six-dinner cat, he just moves to Pythagoras Place where the neighbors do talk to one another and don't mind sharing dinner with him. Moore's large, colored pencil illustrations are realistic and fill the pages. She is especially strong in portraying individualized characters in the multiethnic neighborhood and the wonderful feline playfulness and insouciance of Sid. The text is rhythmic and the plot is one that children can follow and enjoy. Moore's text and lush illustrations work together to create a book that can be shared one-on-one or with a group. Readers will be happy to have this cat come back again and again. --Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI
