The Lovereading4Kids comment
CD Audio edition read by Paul Chequer.
A wonderfully emotional but heart-warming tale from the pen of one of the foremost writers for children. Brilliantly interwoven in historical fact at the time of the sinking of the Titanic is the story of Kaspar the Savoy cat, who we also discover is a survivor of the infamous catastrophe. The story is utterly compelling and this audio edition brings all the sights and the sounds to life quite brilliantly. It also complements the book.
A message from the author:
I was recently asked to be Writer-in-Residence at the Savoy Hotel in London. This involved putting on some literary events and staying for three months at the Savoy. My wife Clare and I had a bed the size of Ireland, and breakfast every morning looking out over the Thames. Everyone in the hotel was very kind. We were treated like royalty - which was great! The story of Kaspar was written then.
Kaspar by Michael Morpurgo
A miraculous story of survival. Kaspar is a feline fairy tale which tells how, after a pampered life as Countess Kandinsky’s beloved pet which includes a spell staying in the Savoy, the eponymous cat survives the dramatic sinking of the Titanic. Freshly told by Johnny Trott, a young bell boy who befriends Kaspar, this slice of day dreaming against a real historical background is delightful.
