A beautifully illustrated historical tale for kids aged 5+
Readers of all ages will be enchanted by this bundle containing The Book Cat, written by Polly Faber and illustrated by Clara Vulliamy plus an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in June 2022.
“Polly and Clara are one of our favourite author/illustrator partnerships and the combination of words and pictures is simply beautiful”
About the book
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.
About the author and illustrator
Both Polly and Clara have children’s books in their blood. Polly’s grandfather set up the publishing house Faber & Faber, whilst Clara is the daughter of award-winning author and illustrator Shirley Hughes.
Together Polly and Clara have created the Mango and Bambang series and Picking Pickle, to critical acclaim.
