Children who enjoyed Bottomley the Brave and Bottomley Cattery when they were younger will be delighted to see that Bottomley, the cat of little energy and a large imagination, is back in three new stories for older readers.

In Bottomley in Telly Land , our favourite moggy sneaks into a TV studios and kids himself into thinking that he is going to become a TV star, and in Bottomley's Angels , Bottomley finds himself taking a big part in the school nativity play.
