Synopsis

The House That Zac Built by Alison Murray

Zac is so busy playing with his toy building blocks that he doesn't notice a cute little kitten is causing chaos around the farm ...Who would think that such a tiny cat could help to cause such a mess! It's up to Zac to put things right again. This adorable reworking of a much loved traditional rhyme, in a farmyard setting with lambs, chickens, cows and a faithful pet dog, is perfect for preschoolers. The story is made all the more loveable with Alison Murray's warm, witty and stylish illustrations.
