To The South Side tells the adventures of Mr Miserly's cat during a walkabout to The South Side. There he comes across Shadowman, who brings the Christmas tree decorations in Abby and Keanu's house to life. The decorations wonder where they come from, as does the tree and, indeed, Shadowman himself. Through Abby and Keanu, the cat meets their grandmother, Mrs Muck. Mrs Muck is a very neat and tidy person who simply has to be put into her place by the monstrous It who lives in the ant Queendom down below. Eventually, on his way back to The North Side, the cat hears the Creation Story as told by an ancient spider. An internet fact sheet and a spider's dictionary compliment the second and third stories respectively. This second book in The Cat Series contains three stories written for starter readers in the 6 to 9 year old age-group.

About Leni Hurley

Leni Hurley lives in The Netherlands. However, she spends much time in Ireland where she was married and lived from 1973-2000. In her youth, she trained as a ballet dancer at the Nel Roos Academy of Ballet, later part of the Theatre School of Amsterdam. In Ireland she ran the Skerries School of Dance and Mime. It is in this period that she wrote several theatre pieces as well as poetry. In the year 2000 she returned to The Netherlands, where she studied Traditional Chinese Medicine. Having published her book "Mindful Nutrition, How to Make the Most of a Whole Foods Diet," Leni began rewriting her previous theatre pieces into children's books. The Cat Series is the result of this endeavour. Four books have been written so far: Playalore, To The South Side, The Return of the Sun and The Barrel Dogs.
