Cat Tales

Life can be difficult sometimes as our four colourful cats discover when confronted by the sort of uncomfortable emotions that affect us all. Meet characters Ginger, Doug, Lillie and Jess in their everyday adventures, and watch as they unravel what matters most in their relationships with each other and themselves.

An illustrated fable to be enjoyed by all, "Cat Tales" reveals the joy to be found when life is transformed. Loneliness becomes companionship, spite turns into good will, and out of conflict unity grows. In endearing and relatable rhyme, our characters reach the conclusion that kindness and friendship are the best things of all.
