''A HEART-WARMING SURVIVAL STORY – A TALE OF HOPE, HUMANITY, TRIUMPH OVER DANGER AND ADVERSITY, AND WINNING AGAINST ALL THE ODDS.'' LOVEREADING4KIDS
October 2020 and the world is in the grip of the coronavirus pandemic. On the Greek island of Agrion, forest fires are raging, tourists are scarce, and restaurants are closing.
Life on the streets is tough for street cats, Silva, Theo and Lila. The three tabbies are hungry, very hungry, and under threat from perils known and unknown. They dream of ESCAPE.
Enter a legal bubble – two English sisters and their five children who have managed to travel to Agrion between lockdowns. Eleven-year-old Jack forms a special bond with Theo and is determined to rescue him and his sisters. But how?
From the author of My Cat Called Red comes a new action and adventure chapter book for children aged 8 to 12 – an exciting survival story inspired by a true story. With the appeal of timeless animal classics such as Black Beauty and heart-warming real-life tales such as A Street Cat Named Bob, this account of a daring animal rescue mission during the pandemic will appeal to animal lovers of all ages: relevant, contemporary, a tale of hope and humanity, of triumph over danger and adversity against all the odds.
A percentage of royalties from the sale of this book will go to help Greek cat welfare charities helping those very real, very hungry stray cats still in Greece.
