A fabulous foiled edition celebrating the fifteenth anniversary

of the publication of Tabby McTat by Julia Donaldson and

Axel Scheffler.

"Me, you and the old guitar.

How perfectly,

perfectly happy we are.

MEEE-EW and the old guitar.

How PURRRR-fectly happy we are!"

Tabby McTat is purr-fectly happy, singing along

all day with Fred the busker.

But when Fred gives chase to a thief, the two

are separated.

Will they ever find each other again?

A gorgeous, shiny foiled cover makes this the perfect gift

With exclusive material about the creation of the story and the

character from Julia and Axel

Perfect read-aloud rhyming text and stunning pictures on every

page with lots of details to spot

Friendship and loyalty are at the heart of this story

From the creators of The Gruffalo, Stick Man, Zog

and The Smeds and The Smoos, which have all been

made into animated films

The animated film of Tabby McTat stars

voice artists including Jodie Whittaker (Doctor Who) as the narrator,

Rob Brydon (Gavin and Stacey) as Fred, Sope Dirisu (Gangs

of London) as Tabby McTat, alongside Cariad Lloyd, Joanna Scanlan

and Susan Wokoma.

Look out for Jonty Gentoo by Julia

Donaldson and Axel Scheffler in 2024.

Praise for Tabby McTat:

"Absolutely purr-fect" The Times

"Scheffler's detailed drawings have an optimistic allure and

Donaldson's soothing rhymes make this perfect for bedtime" Daily


"It has the same old fashioned, long-lasting magic as Mary Poppins;

and it's also absolutely accurate about the real nature of

cats" The Times

"Donaldson's lovely bounding rhymes make Tabby McTat a pleasure

to read out loud to children of three or four and up. Scheffler's

richly detailed illustrations are warm and witty" FT

"Donaldson's rhythmic text carries the reader through this urban

fairytale of friendship, singing - and kittens" Yorkshire
