Summary

During the Second World War a stray cat arrives at a publishing house in London, and soon becomes an indispensable part of the business.

This is a classic wartime tale of a (real!) cat who made his home at the Faber offices and decided he'd never leave.

Morgan is a young orphan who lives off scavenging - until he finds a cosy home at a famous London publishing house. Over time he learns a trade - and soon becomes the very best book cat in the business. And then the Blitz begins. Morgan finds himself training up twenty odd kittens to be book cats, and then there is the small matter of secretly evacuating them out of London. Happily, Morgan has a plan.

NOTE : There is spot-foiling on the front cover and spine.
