Having saved the city cats from a fate worse than death, Varjak Paw finds himself the elected and popular leader of a new gang - a gang that supports freedom and kindness for all. But will the pressure take its toll on this brave yet sometimes naive cat?

Soon the city erupts in an all-out gang war as the evil Sally Bones attempts to control the lives of all cats. Horrified and outnumbered, Varjak and the others must fight for their freedom or die trying; can Jalal's Way really be the best way?

This is another thrilling adventure, eagerly awaited by all Varjak fans, both young and old.

Review:

"Original and amazingly engrossing . . . it is much enhanced by its high-quality production and the beautiful illustrations by Dave McKean" (Sarah Crompton Daily Telegraph)

"To today's overprotected children, Varjak Paw is the perfect emblem of the joys and dangers of freedom. Beautifully illustrated by Dave McKeen and written in spine-tingling prose, the novels have a suspenseful edginess that children instantly respond to" (Amanda Craig The Times)

"A wonderfully original creation: a fearless feline with a gift for whizzy martial arts . . . grippingly vivid . . . Dave McKean's scratchy, lean drawings perfectly capture Said's dark narrative" (Evening Standard)

"It's refreshing to enter a world of cats. And not just any old cats, but the rich collection of heroes and villains in the world of Varjak Paw . . . The Outlaw Varjak Paw is another swift, compelling tale. And Varjak is an appealing and believable hero" (The New York Times)

"The bleakness of the story is magnified by Dave McKean's brilliant illustrations. The combination of his blood-spattered paintings and Said's staccato descriptions lends the fight scenes an almost balletic quality . . . The world inhabited by these emaciated cats becomes engrossing, while the emotional ambiguities offer plenty for adults to think about" (Time Out)

Book Description:
