This book is a series of adventures of Pussy Cat Dilly Dot. Dilly Dot is an alley cat. She was named so because she has one silver spot at the tip of her tail. Her family is adopted and taken away when she goes playing outside. Her adventures begin when she goes in search of them. She is rescued by a girl called Mercury while searching for her family. She finds out that Mercury's grandmother is the one who has adopted her family. Dilly Dot is really happy to be united with them. The stories also introduce us to the animals she meets during her adventure. Whether it is Bug Eye, Jim the beetle, or Tasteless Rat, the rat, Waddles the pup whom she meets at Mercury's house, Bullet the rabbit, Mr.Owl, or Fred Blue Jay, the characters will all be etched in your mind. The author has created characters that are appealing to children. The book has some wonderful illustrations to go with the stories. It indirectly tells children to be more affectionate and caring toward their fellow beings and treat everyone with respect.

Dilly Dot's character is that of a rude and immature kitten. She looks down upon everyone and thinks she is the best judge of everything. The series of stories in this book tell us about her adventures and the lessons she learns from each one of them. It finally shapes her character and changes her into a loving and caring kitten.
