Pog the irresistible cat more used to chasing birds is bowled over by a bird who lands nearby and starts to sing. Trust and friendship ensues until Pog’s friend Puss-tat comes along to play chase the birdies.


Pog and the Birdies by Jane Simmons

When a little bird lands right next to Pog and starts to sing, Pog thinks it is the sweetest music he has ever heard. But then along comes Puss-tat and invites Pog to play - chasing birdies! Will the little bird ever return to sing to Pog again? A charming roof-top tale, two irresistible cats and a lovely message about friendship and trust, which will appeal to both adults and children alike!

About the Author

Jane Simmons

Jane has tried her hand at landscape gardening, futon making, teaching basket weaving and soft toy making but claims the only thing that has held her interest was the idea of writing and illustrating children's books.

Having travelled extensively with her family and living in a whole range of unusual homes, it is no surprise that her current home is hardly conventional. Jane, and her menagerie of rescued pets, live on an ex-fishing boat, aptly named 'Prosperity'. Along with her husband, Neil, she is currently travelling the waterways of France and heading for the sunnier climes of the Mediterranean.

The view from the wheelhouse of 'Prosperity' is the inspiration for Jane's books and while Daisy, gets into all sorts of trouble on the river, Ebb and Flo live on a boat very similar to Jane's and have their adventures by the sea.

Jane and Neil share 'Prosperity' with Gertie and Bertie the lovebirds, dogs called Daisy and Pip and Doris the cat.
