Before 1940, the sacred Cat of Burma was the most expensive cat in the world, due to its alleged rarity and its favour with the wealthy French class. From the first mention of this feline in 1922, and although the veracity of its Burmese tale was quickly questioned, no one had succeeded in uncovering the truth about its origins.

Dr Alain Lescart, scholar and breeder of Burmese cats, managed to uncover significant details on this subject while revealing the behind the scenes of a now forgotten legal case which made the front page of all French newspapers of the time, and which revolved around Mme Juanita Leotardi, the first sacred breeder in Burma, and a major mythomaniac.

In his work, the author follows the evolution of the legend with its inconsistencies and contradictions. He is finally interested in the difficulties encountered by the first breeders to develop the breed in the years preceding the Second World War.

In A Cat and Eight Kittens, an ordinary cloudy morning walk transforms into an extraordinary adventure for a mother cat and her eight kittens. Little could they imagine the whirlwind of events that would unfold after a chance encounter with an irate dog.

The story takes a thrilling turn when the feline family, seeking refuge from the persistent pursuit of a large brown dog and the relentless rain, stumbles upon what they believe could be their new home. It is here that Spot, the mischievous, snow-white kitten with a distinctive black spot over his right eye, leads the kittens to an incredible discovery: a mysterious sphere with flashing lights. This sphere astonishingly materializes food at the mere mention of it, a feature that, as their mother had feared, attracts the attention of their canine pursuers.

The tension escalates when the dogs arrive in search of the source of the tantalizing scents. It's then that the young kittens unleash their playful yet ingenious tactics to outwit their pursuers. However, a mishap occurs when Felix, one of the kittens, disappears due to an unintended consequence of a wish. Just when it seems all hope is lost, the story culminates in a heartwarming twist. The cat family finds themselves reunited, including Felix, in a picturesque setting: a serene farm by a lake, complete with a loving owner.

A hilarious picture book about one mischievous cat’s action-packed day, told through clever rhyme and exuberant art from award-winning creators.

It's a busy day for Cat, who is living his best life and managing to cause plenty of trouble along the way! After all, he's a mirror attacker and a morning-tea whacker. A potted-plant disaster and an acrobat master. A vacuum avoider and a sofa destroyer.

But when thunder and lightning strike, it turns out he's a dark-storm worrier and a back-closet scurrier. A curled-up loner and a scaredy-cat groaner. Once the storm passes, though, is it possible Cat just might be a moonlight cuddler and all-night snuggler at heart?

Kristen Tracy's ingenious verse and David Small's masterfully expressive and uproariously funny artwork capture all the charm and personality of these irresistible fur babies—hairballs and all.
