Miss Read

An enchanting true story about a cat who came to stay by the bestselling author of the Fairacre series.‘Never again,’ they said, when their beloved cat was run down on the busy road near the cottage where they lived.

But they hadn’t reckoned on Tiggy. A stray cat, fiercely protective of her kittens, Tiggy was soon befriended by Miss Read - although it took some time before Tiggy allowed her kittens to go anywhere near the house.

Written with the charm that made Miss Read a bestseller, this delightful book tells how a small stray cat, struggling to look after her kittens, won a home, a hearth and a name from the author and her husband. Tiggy’s resourcefulness, perseverance and indomitable spirit are beautifully observed, and Miss Read’s affectionate admiration of the newcomer will touch the hearts of cat lovers everywhere.

£6.99 + p&p
