The classic story about a cat in danger of using up all of her nine lives from the author of The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark.

Suzy is a little striped cat, who lives in a French seaside village with a fisherman and his four sons. Like all cats, Suzy is very inquisitive, which causes problems when she climbs into the basket of a hot air balloon - and is carried off over the channel to England! How will she ever get back to France? It won't be easy, but Suzy refuses to be put off by a bit of water.
Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades. Perfect for kids aged 5+ who love Julia Donaldson, and Dick King Smith's The Sheep Pig. This edition is beautifully illustrated by Paul Howard.

Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured. But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children. So she did! Jill Tomlinson's animal stories are much-loved and have been best-selling children's books for nearly four decades.
