Description

This title presents purrfect tales about fab furry felines from celebrated author Linda Newbery.Hattie loves going to visit her great-uncle Theo's toyshop, especially since the arrival of a tortoiseshell cat with intelligent green eyes. Hattie loves the cat and names her Twister, on account of the friendly way she curls and twists between people's legs. When no one comes to claim her, Twister becomes the Shop Cat and proves very popular with customers. In fact, she seems to have an uncanny knack of directing people to the toys they want to buy, and soon business is booming! But then strange things begin to happen. First there's the mysterious couple who Hattie suspects of shoplifting, and then there are the beautiful toy boxes that start appearing, nestled between the toys. This never happened before Twister turned up! Who are the strange couple? And could Twister really be a magical cat? "Curl up with Cat Tales", a charming collection of stand-alone stories, at turns magical, mysterious, comic and touching.
