Already the star of The Tobermory Cat this handsome ginger cat is now back for second story which is also a counting book. Having woken up hungry, The Tobermory Cat is searching for something delicious to eat. What will he be able to find? Based on a real cat and set in the pretty town of Tobermory with its beautiful sea views this is great counting book which also gives a good view of life as seen through the eyes of a cat.


Tobermory 1, 2, 3 by Debi Gliori

Debi Gliori's delightful The Tobermory Cat was one of the most popular children's books of 2012. Based on a real cat known to local inhabitants as well as thousands of visitors to Mull, the island's ginger tom and his extraordinary antics have now become world famous. Young children will love this counting book in which the Tobermory Cat wakes up hungry and explores the town in search of something to eat.
