9780007211517: The Whisperer

An edgy new picture book from the renowned creator of Percy the Park Keeper. Featuring an exciting new style of illustration and a thought-provoking plot, this stunning picture book is set to become a firm favourite.

Two gangs of cats live in a scrap yard on the edge of the city. When they’re not eating or sleeping, they’re fighting, and that’s just how The Whisperer likes it. He’s a rat, and if he can keep the cats going after each other, they’ll leave him and his kind alone.

But just maybe, things in the scrap yard are about to change for the better. Or as The Whisperer sees it...for the worse...
