The Story of Tantrum O'Furrily
By Cressida Cowell
Illustrated by Mark Nicholas
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. 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.
Cressida Cowell grew up in London and on a small, uninhabited island off the west coast of Scotland. She was convinced that there were dragons living on this island, and has been fascinated by dragons ever since. Cressida has written and illustrated twelve books in the popular How to Train Your Dragon series which is now published in over 35 languages. Also the author of picture books, Cressida has won the Nestle Children's Book Prize and has been shortlisted for many others. Cressida lives in Hammersmith with her husband and three children.
