Varjak Paw

Varjak Paw is descended from a proud line of Mesopotamian Blue cats. For generations they have been living in shelter and luxury in the Contessa’s house. Now the Paws are in danger and only Varjak, mocked because he has different coloured eyes, understands enough to go Outside and seek help. Dreams help him to learn a martial art for cats known as the Way of Jalal, his ancestor, and so defeat his enemies. An attractively produced novel with black and white illustrations by an artist best known for his work in graphic novels.
