Varjak Paw

by ,
  • (28 reviews)

    Varjak Paw is a hugely popular book to read aloud in Year 3 or Year 4. It tells the story of a small Mesopotamian Blue kitten who learns about the Way -  a secret martial art for cats. Now Varjak must use the Way to survive in a city full of dangerous dogs and cats and strange goings on.

    There are currently two books in the Varjak Paw series and we know a lot of Varjak Paw fans are eagerly waiting for book 3. This is what author S.F. Said had to say on the subject back in 2013, "There will definitely be a third Varjak Paw book, but I don't think there'll be more. You see, in the first book, he's a kitten.  In the second, he's an adult cat. In the third book, I think he'll be an old cat, like the Elder Paw or Jalal. But to write a book about an old character, I need to be old myself, to know what it feels like. I'm getting there, but I'm not quite ready yet! In the meantime, if you enjoyed Varjak Paw, I hope you'll read Phoenix – I think it's the best book I've written so far!" 

    There sadly isn't a Varjak Paw film, despite the book being optioned by The Jim Henson Company back in 2006.
