Tabby McTat

Written by Julia Donaldson

Tabby McTat is purr-fectly happy, singing along all day with Fred the busker. But when Fred gives chase to a thief, the two are separated. Will they ever find each other again? A heart-warming story of friendship, loyalty - and kittens!

Tabby McTat book cover

Axel says:

I find it quite hard to do stories set in the real world (which then never looks like the real world anyway.) I wanted the story to take place in London - but the editor wanted it to be set in Coedition- nowhere land, but that is impossible anyway. The cats on the cover are absurdly big - nobody minded, but I had drawn teeth (of course!) and they were sadly removed. I think Prunella and Pat were meant to be man and woman - but in my head they were two women living together.
