A superb title in the new-look Sprinters relaunch by a highly acclaimed children's author. Jane has a cat called Furlong who walks with her to school every day. Then, one day, he takes his own way home. When William, the new boy, threatens Jane with violence, it seems the only way she can escape him is to take Furlong's secret path, along the wall and into the unknown...; With its simple, dynamic story-telling and line illustrations, this is ideal for children building their reading confidence.
