So what happens to those cats who are scared of mice and afraid of birds? Those who can’t pounce and won’t purr?

They head to ‘Miss Hazeltine’s Home for Shy and Fearful Cats‘, of course.


There, the ever so slightly crazy cat lady, but oh so, caring Miss Hazeltine teaches the cats several basic lessons that *every* cat should know.

First up, was a lesson in bird basics, closely followed by climbing up and down trees and finally, pounce practice.

Here, the cats finally felt as though they belonged.

The clear undertones of finding your own place in this world and not needing to be fearful, rumble away subconsciously as the story gathers pace.

A truly uplifting tale about love, belonging and finding your inner lion.

The perfect read for any child, but particularly those who may be struggling to find their own place in this world.
