About the Author:

Antonia Barber is an award-winning author who has written books for both adults and children, including Catkin, illustrated by P. J. Lynch, which was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal. She lives in Kent and Cornwall. Nicola Bayley is a gifted painter, best known for her loving, detailed illustrations of cats. She has illustrated many acclaimed picture books including The Necessary Cat, Katje the Windmill Cat, The Curious Cat and The Jungle Book. Nicola lives in London.

From School Library Journal:

In lilting and alliterative language, Barber tells the story of Mowzer the cat who saves a Cornish fishing village from starvation at Christmas. The Great Storm-Cat rages outside the snug little harbor and no boats can leave, so Mowzer agrees to accompany her own pet, the human fisherman old Tom, on a fishing venture "for he was only a man. . . and men were like mice in the paws of the Great Storm-Cat." The story is cleverly told from the cat's point of view, with the oceanic Storm-Cat personified both in the text and in the blue-green swirls of Bayley's luminous paintings, which capture nuance, detail, motion, and emotion with energy and rhythm. Narrow bars decorated with sea motifs neatly frame the text in this elegant offering.
