Ship's Cat Doris

By Jane Simmons

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A beautifully illustrated tale of growing up and finding your place in the world...

When the owners of 'Prosperity' choose a little kitten to be their new ship's cat, they think he's a girl and name him Doris! But soon Doris finds this isn't his only problem: settling into life on board and finding his place alongside the ship's dogs, Little Madge and Big John, and Freda, their dotty bird, is going to be tricky. Not to mention facing the local shipyard bully, Jasper. Can Doris find his feet in this new world and learn to be proud to be a ship's cat?

Meet a brilliant cast of animal characters in this charming story of friendship and belonging, with beautiful black and white illustrations throughout.

Biographical Notes

Jane has tried her hand at landscape gardening, futon making, teaching basket weaving and soft toy making but only truly loves writing and illustrating children`s books.

As a mature student, Jane studied Illustration at Anglia University, Cambridge. During her course, her talent was recognised with several awards including the Association of Illustrators Images 20 Student Prize in 1995.

The success of Jane`s Daisy titles has been phenomenal. Her artwork is irresistible and Daisy, the little duck with big feet, is loved the world over.

Jane, her partner, and her menagerie of rescued pets travel the Mediterranean on an ex-fishing boat - and her adventures have provided the inspiration for Ship's Cat Doris.
