Varjak Paw is a cat with attitude – as well as knowing each of the Seven Skills that give cats their special powers. All of that should make him invincible but Sally bones who leads the most dangerous gang in the city knows all of that too – and more. Can Varjak survive in this cat-to-cat world? The claws are out in this great feline adventure.

About the Author

S F Said

SF was born in Beirut, Lebanon in May 1967. His family was originally from the Middle East – like Varjak, SF has Mesopotamian ancestors – but he has lived in London since the age of two. Growing up in the flat above where Quentin Blake lived may be why he always wanted to be a children’s writer.

While waiting to be discovered as a writer SF spent 6 years in Middle East Politics, writing for the Crown Prince of Jordan. Following this he went to Cambridge University to do a PhD in Criminology. During his degree SF started writing articles about books and films which won him national journalism prizes. He now writes regularly for the Daily Telegraph and has interviewed the likes of Philip Pullman, Jacqueline Wilson, Quentin Blake and William Nicholson. His success as a journalist led him into judging the Whitbread Children’s Book Award and programming for the Edinburgh Film Festival.
