Summary

This is a classic wartime tale of a (real!) cat who made his home at the Faber offices and decided he’d never leave.

‘This time we need to get you – get all of the kittens, safe out of London,’ said Morgan decisively . . . ‘To have a chance for a better life, well, let’s just say, I’ve got an idea.’

Morgan is a young orphan who lives off scavenging – until he finds a cosy home at a famous London publishing house. Over time he learns a trade – and soon becomes the very best book cat in the business. And then the Blitz begins. Morgan finds himself training up twenty odd kittens to be book cats, and then there is the small matter of secretly evacuating them out of London. Happily, Morgan has a plan.

Set in war-torn London, charmingly illustrated, and full of heart and verve.

‘Charming.’
Sunday Times
‘A sweet feline twist on the classic evacuee story.’ The Guardian
