One day a strange cat appears at the door. 'My name is Tom Finger,' he cries. Each day he appears, and each day he leaves a strange and wonderful gift: a silk purse, a lace handkerchief, an embroidered needle case. Queenie is completely entranced by him - her brother though is convinced he is a witch's cat. But Queenie is determined to find out - and one day starts following the cat through the snowy forest, following a trail of red wool...What Queenie finds at the end of the trail is totally unexpected. A book that has exquisite, beautiful illustrations,and a traditional feel that will be cherished for years to come. Praise for Tom Finger: 'McClure's storytelling has a strange magical rhythm to it and her drawings have a wistful delicacy' Books for Keeps 'enchanting' Financial Times 'a magical tale, set in a snowy landscape' Daily Telegraph
