The Story of Tantrum O'Furrily

By Cressida Cowell
Illustrated by Mark Nicholas

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A lyrical new text from the bestselling author of the How To Train Your Dragon series, Cressida Cowell, with striking illustrations from a talented, debut artist, Mark Nicholas

'One wild and windy night a stray cat called Tantrum O'Furrily and her three hungry kittens were dancing across the roof tops . . . '

Written by Cressida Cowell, creator of the bestselling How to Train Your Dragon series and with beautiful illustrations by Mark Nicholas, winner of the Carmelite Prize.

Tantrum O'Furrily's kittens are hungry and doubt that a story can ease a stray cat's rumbling stomach. However, they soon learn that stories are powerful, and that if you're courageous you might find a saucer of milk at the end of that story.
