Hetty the cat wakes up, yawns, washes behind her ears, and pops through her cat flap into the bright sunlight. And what does she find in the big wide world?

This is a charming counting book about a cat's day out on the town and all the delectable treats she is fed by her friendly neighbours – with slightly disastrous results! In her typically playful and child-friendly style, Pam has used repetition and reinforcement to introduce the numbers up to seven. We follow Hetty through her journey of pork pies and cupcakes to the dramatic climax and satisfying conclusion, which sees her home and safe again.
