Nick Sharratt's fabulously funny debut novel is now available

in paperback. 

The Cat and the King tells the story of a gentle, unworldly

King and his very clever cat, and is illustrated throughout

in two colours with Nick’s irresistible

wit and humour.

The cat and the King must find a new home after their castle burns

down in an Unfortunate Incident with a dragon.

They choose Number 37 Castle Close, and the cat introduces the

King to all sorts of new experiences, from washing-up to shopping.

Then danger looms when the pesky, fire-breathing dragon makes

its return.

Nick Sharratt is the fabulously talented author and illustrator

of bestselling hilarious picture books such as 

Ketchup on Your Cornflakes

Don't Put Your Finger in the Jelly, Nellie

Moo-cow, Kung-fu-cow

this is Nick Sharratt's first chapter book EVER! 

illustrated throughout in two-colour

easy to read text - perfect for children learning to read

 

PRAISE FOR THE CAT AND THE KING:

"A majestic treat", Sunday Times

Children's Book of the Week 2016

"Nick Sharratt's debut novel is an entertaining mix of familiar

experience and fairy-tale fantasy underscored by a thread of

anarchic humour. This is a beautifully-presented storybook, in

which the fabulous illustrations are as integral as the text, and

will appeal to adults as well as independent readers." -

BookTrust

 

PRAISE FOR THE SECOND BOOK, NICE WORK FOR THE CAT

AND THE KING

In this second book about the long-suffering, loyal cat and

the well-meaning but somewhat ineffectual King, there are plenty

of laughs and brilliant illustrative detail (the department store

is particularly lovely) from Nick Sharratt, whose recognisable

illustration is such a favourite with children.

A heavily illustrated short novel for early readers, it's

a perfect book for younger ones that want something a bit longer

than a picture book but still love silly humour and a great, well-written

concept. - BookTrust
