April 2014 Debut of the Month Join Oscar the cat in his secret passion! He may look like any old cat to you but Oscar loves to dance! He can foxtrot and salsa and whirl and twirl as much as you like. Oscar’s dancing will bring a smile to everyone’s face.


The Tip-tap Dancing Cat by Joanna Boyle

Have you ever wondered what your cat gets up to when you're not around? Oscar is a cat with a secret: he loves to dance! And just as it happens, he's pretty good at it too. He can foxtrot and two-step, tap dance and salsa - and has even been known to FREESTYLE! This energetic picture book will leave readers all set to get up and get their dancing shoes on.

Wonderfully illustrated by a talented new author/illustrator who remarkably captures various dancing styles - from the Salsa to the Charlston to the Two-Step!


This book is SO adorable! Arlene Phillips

About the Author

Joanna recently graduated from University College Falmouth in Cornwall and is celebrating her first year in the industry. Since graduating, she has been part of the New Blood and New Designers exhibition in London and has worked on some unusual projects - including illustrating a tent for the company Field Candy. She is a frequent blogger and her idea for My Tip-Tap, Two-Step Dancing Cat came from a lethal combination of Strictly Come Dancing and too much tea.
