Product description

Amid the terror of World War II, out of the blazing hell of blitzed Coventry, one brave cat leads the way to safety. People touch her for luck, or fear her as an omen of disaster. Wherever she goes, she changes lives. Her determination never wavers. She is the Blitzcat.

Winner of the Smarties Book Prize.

“Westall’s writing has always been strong and vivid but he has rarely written as confidently as this.” TLS
