Description

Varjak Paw is a Mesopotamian Blue kitten. He lives high up in an old house on a hill. He’s never left home, but then his grandfather tells him about the Way – a secret martial art for cats. Now Varjak must use the Way to survive in a city full of dangerous dogs, cat gangs and, strangest of all the mysterious Vanishings.

Publisher Review

"A beguiling tale that sticks in the memory. The cat's whiskers" * The Sunday Times * "Stylish, original and inventive, Varjak Paw is a modern children's classic" "Dazzling" * The New York Times * "The book is compulsive reading; we are with Varjak every step of his way, willing him to succeed. Independent readers of 9 upwards will treasure it, not least for its illustrations, and some will camp out on the publisher's doorstep for the sequel" * Ann Hay, The School Librarian * "The cat magic mystique is brilliant" -- Richard Adams * Author of Watership Down *
