Synopsis

The Cat's Tale by Nick Butterworth, Mick Inkpen

A sleepy cat up on the roof spies something interesting going on in the courtyard below - rushing around, guests...food! As the cat goes down to sneak scraps from the table he tells the story that he sees unfolding before him: Jesus turning water to wine. A charming slant on the famous Bible story, told and illustrated by two best-loved children's picture book creators.
