The Patchwork Cat

The lid is tightly on; the bin is in the air and upside-down. Tabby falls out, wrapped in her patchwork quilt. She is in the rubbish truck. She sits and cries with no one there to hear. The engines and the shaking and the dangers and the quaking catch her calls.

  1. Hi Barbara! Thanks for your kind message, you have a lovely blog here. And I am looking at your shop too. It looks very interesting! I like to collect Ladybird books (so long as they are older than me), anything by Dick Bruna, George McDonald, Allison Uttley, E.Nesbit...the list goes on. Special interest in Aussie books of course.

  2. Hello Hannah, thanks for calling in. Really glad you like my blog as I feel just the same about yours! I love the fact that you collect Ladybird books (so long as they are older than you) what a great way to put it.

  3. Oh my! This book sounds so sweet. I love it. I hope it has a good ending. I love stories like this.

  4. Hello Donna – it’s a gorgeous book with a very happy ending.


I really appreciate your comment. Thank you!
Barbara xx
