Synopsis

The Ship's Kitten by Matilda Webb

In a small fishing town, in an island entirely surrounded by stormy winter sea, a little kitten, alone in the wind and rain, searches for a home. The dark green sea boils and crashes around her and the fish glitter like diamonds in the waves. She sees the boats bobbing up and down in the harbour and knows that she wants to be a ship’s cat. But which has room for a ship’s kitten?
