Bottomley at Large by Peter Harris


Bottomley at Large by Peter Harris

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's Spooky Night , Bottomley unsuspectingly ventures out on Hallowe'en and meets an army of creatures he thinks are trying to invade the planet! 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.
