Malkin Moonlight

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Malkin Moonlight is given his wonderful name by the Moon, who also tells the tiny black kitten that he is destined for great things. Following his sixth sense, he is drawn to Roux - a lovely domestic kitten, the colour of smoke - and the two soon fall in love.

When Roux's family decide to move, Roux chooses to stay with Malkin, which means the two cats must find a new home where they can live together safely. The recycling centre seems like the perfect place - but little do they know, a war is coming. And it's a war that will see Malkin fulfil his destiny.

This charming, magical story reads like a classic. It is beautifully written and populated with fabulous characters. Malkin is a fantastic protagonist: caring, inquisitive and sensitive. It is no wonder that this won the National Literacy Trust's New Children's Author Prize.
