The brand new picture book from the beloved and iconic Judith Kerr.

This magical new book from the one and only Judith Kerr is brimming with her trademark warm humour and exquisitely imaginative artwork.

Come on a wondrous journey with Katinka, a perfectly ordinary pussycat, with a not-quite-so-ordinary tail...

A classic-in-the-making from Judith Kerr OBE, recipient of the Booktrust Lifetime Acveivement Award and creator of the iconic The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Mog the Forgetful Cat, this delightful story is the perfect gift for boys and girls of all ages.

Undoubtedly one of the leading lights of children’s fiction Judith Kerr’s stories - be it those of the archetypal mischievous Mog, the ravenous visitor The Tiger Who Came to Tea, or her autobiographically inspired series Out of the Hitler Time - have always been inspired by the world that surrounded her and her own fascinating life story.
