Captain Cat

By Inga Moore

Let Inga Moore take you on an adventure with Captain Cat and his shipful of cats. New lands, an island Queen, untold treasures and glorious feasts … it will be a journey like no other!

Captain Cat is a trader. However, his eye is not for gold but for … CATS! So much so, that his ship – the Carlotta – is populated by all kinds of felines! But one day, Captain Cat decides that it’s time to give up his trading and, with his beloved cats in tow, visit all the places he has always dreamed of. Out on the sea, a rogue storm brews up and Captain Cat ends up on a remote island. Here, they meet an Island Queen who’s beside herself with joy … she has never seen a cat before! She prepares a huge feast in their honour, but – EWWW! A horde of hungry RATS emerge! Good thing Captain Cat has his ship full of cats! Amazed, the queen begs Captain Cat to trade her his cats for untold treasure. Does he? Could he? What happens next? Never fear, fellow travellers! The purr-fect solution is on the horizon and is sure to satisfy both pet-lovers and adventurers.

Reviews

'Inga Moore’s exquisite picturebook Captain Cat transports readers to distant places. Moore’s dreamy illustrations are full of incident and romance.' The Times

'One for cat-fanciers of all ages…a generous story that children will find easy to digest, and it is, in the lightest possible way, about the holiness of the heart’s affections.' The New Review (The Observer)

'A relaxed, chatty tone of voice and the illustrations are superb… every turn of the page is a joy . . . a visual feat.' Books for Keeps
