Tabby McTat

Publisher: Scholastic

Tabby McTat is a purrr-fectly happy busker's cat, until one day he falls in love with Sock, a gorgeous green-eyed cat.

But when his busker Fred is hurt and taken away to hospital, Tabby can't find him and misses him terribly. Sock soon has three kittens, the littlest with a deafening miaow and powerful purr. When Tabby finally finds Fred, he is torn between Sock and the lonely busker. All is resolved when the littlest kitten begs to be the busker’s cat.

A poetic story of love, adventure and music that demands to be read aloud or possibly sung, depending on the power of the reader's purr. Young children can follow the whole story through the colourful, action-packed illustrations.
