Synopsis

Ginger Finds A Home by Charlotte Voake

The captivating prequel to the award-winning bestseller, Ginger. A little, hungry ginger cat lives on his own in a patch of weeds at the bottom of a garden, spending all day looking for food in dustbins and drinking from puddles ...until one day, the little cat comes back to find something - and someone - waiting for him.

Reviews

Could be an object lesson in how to make the ultimate picture book. Like Ardizzone, Voake can convey worlds of emotion in a squiggly line, and employ perfect economy of words. The Sunday Telegraph
