"Beautifully, carefully written ... a book to wallow in, read and re-read, for any age from five or so to the very grown-up" The Sunday Times In the seaside village of Mousehole, Cornwall, Mowzer the cat lives happily with old fisherman Tom. Their life is a happy one – until one terrible winter the Great Storm-Cat comes clawing and leaping at the harbour walls so that no boat can go out to sea to fish. Soon, with Christmas coming, there is no food left in Mousehole. It is then that Mowzer and Tom set out to brave the fury of the waves, and discover that it might just need a cat’s perspective to understand – and tame – the ferocious ways of the Great Storm-Cat sea… In a beautiful new midi gift size, and with golden foil on the cover and spine, this is an irresistible edition of a moving, stunningly illustrated tale inspired by Cornish legend.
