From the combined talents of Sonya Hartnett and Lucia Masciullo comes a tale of friendship and bravery, and the things we are capable of doing for those we treasure most.

The day is ending, night is falling, and Nicholas's cat won't come down. High on the roof she licks her paws while Nicholas worries about her up there all alone. How can he coax her into the safe, warm house? She doesn't even want to come down from the roof . . . or does she?

From the combined talents of Sonya Hartnett and Lucia Masciullo comes a tale of friendship and bravery, and the things we are capable of doing for those we treasure most.
