Product description

She made her way down the cliff, and on to the beach. At the edge of the waves, she stopped, shaking her wet paws. She knew that somewhere ahead was her person, but far, far away. She miaowed plaintively; stood staring at the moving blur of uncrossable sea.

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, this is an essential wartime classic by Robert Westall.

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