A Cat, A Seagull, An Impossible Task...Caught up in an oil spill, a dying seagull scrambles ashore to lay her final egg and lands on a balcony, where she meets Zorba, a big black cat from the port of Hamburg. The cat promises the seagull to look after the egg, not to eat the chick once it's hatched and - most difficult of all - to teach the baby gull to fly. Will Zorba and his feline friends honour the promise and give Lucky, the adopted little seagull, the strength to discover her true nature?A moving, uplifting and life-enhancing story with a strong environmental theme, Luis Sepulveda's instant children's classic has been a worldwide best-seller and is presented here with new drawings by acclaimed illustrator Satoshi Kitamura.

Review:

'Kitamura's poetic, humorous and witty illustrations are the perfect match for Sepúlveda s fable. I love the fact it's set in my home town.' --Axel Scheffler

'Luis Sepulveda's fable-like story is an international bestseller, and this translation, with illustrations from Japanese artist Satoshi Kitamura, makes an appealing little package.' --BookTrust

The message is overwhelmingly positive; the writing is superbly descriptive and atmospheric and the story has a powerful environmental message - it's a story to ponder over and perfect for classroom discussion. --Parents in Touch

It s beautifully written, expertly translated and Satoshi Kitamura s illustrations perfectly catch the comedy, melancholy and the joy. --Books for Keeps
