‘Once, in a shining night, while the moon looked down and the stars glittered in the endless sky, and all the house was lost in dreams… the little girl woke and heard a cat. ‘Miaow,’ called the cat. ‘Miaow.”

David Almond is known for his subtle and intelligent imagination. This, his first picture book, demonstrates his brilliance as a storyteller – as he weaves together the dreams of Kate, the girl and her family… on a single night of magic with spellbinding illustrations by Stephen Lambert.

Younger readers will be held in thrall.
Scottish Sunday Herald
David Almond's poetic text...provides a background for imaginations to soar. A book for bedtime that entertains through wonder rather than high drma is an unusual treat; this is one to savour.
The Guardian
New and imaginative.
The Sunday Times
Beautifully constructed and eminently re-readable.
Scottish Sunday Herald
A poetic text made of the stuff of dreams.
The Children's Bookseller
A book that will appeal to every child who has longed to run wild.
