The Mousehole Cat

Author: Antonia Barber
Illustrator: Nicola Bayley
Publisher: Walker

This is a magical retelling of an ancient Cornish legend told from the cat’s perspective. It tells the story of Mowser the cat and her pet man Tom and how she saves him from drowning, and the village of Mousehole from starvation, by calming the Great Storm-Cat with her song.

Nicola Bayley’s illustrations have the jewel-like intensity of medieval illumination, which provide rich opportunities for extensive visual exploration and which will inspire children to explore how they might create their own in art or design and technology.
