Elliot Perlman’s first book for children is a tail-spin of a tale that will have you howling with laughter!

When a pampered cat has to share her home with a lost dog, sparks are set to fly. To her surprise, Catvinkle starts to like Ula. She even tells Ula her three secrets. But a cat and a dog can’t be friends – can they?

A tail-spin of a tale that will make you howl with laughter – and remind you that if you aren’t open to adventure, you might never meet your best friend.

Reviews

The themes of social inclusion, anti-racism and anti-bullying are treated gently in this delightful, easy-to-read story . . . There are many quirky, humorous moments . . . A huge bonus are the simple, whimsical, line-drawings by Laura Stitzel.

Pauline Hosking, Magpies

A charming and whimsical tale . . . There are gentle lessons in here about empathy, bravery and friendship, but it’s also simply a delightful and easy-to-read story with laugh-out-loud dialogue that doesn’t talk down to its readers. Although the book is aimed at nine- to eleven-year-olds, parents will enjoy reading this book with younger children too.
