Far away in Japan, five lost cats are listening to some amazing tales! Their storyteller is Kiyoko, a bobtail cat with one green eye and one blue eye. Kiyoko creates charming magical creatures including an Egyptian goddess, a carnival cat and a dancing Siamese. Sometimes the images he describes are scary: a monster with many legs pounds down the mountainside, a demon with terrifying eyes swings down from the rafters. In China, men look for a ghost in the mysterious bamboo lodge, in America, a black cat searches for her sick mistress and in an English graveyard, cats hold a special meeting. Yet there's laughter too: a mouse falls in a barrel of beer, whilst Captain Hallelujah Jones is not your usual pirate and as for the Irish cat - she shows how cats always get their own way! This enchanting collection of beautifully illustrated and captivating tales celebrates the special friendship that develops from sharing stories, as well as appealing to cat-lovers everywhere! Jan Williams is a storyteller herself and both children and adults love her wild imagination and humour.
Born on the West coast of Wales, near a beach with a submerged prehistoric forest, it was inevitable that she should love tale-telling. Today, Jan lives in a sixteenth century cottage in Brightlingsea with her beloved cat. As founder of Essex Storytellers, her previous collection of stories, 'Essex Folk Tales', was published in 2012 by The History Press.
