It’s Christmas time, but will anyone remember the cat on the hill?
Summer in St Ives is a good time for the stray cat who lives on the hill above the bay. Vistors to the chapel give him titbits to eat, and the stone steps are warm beneath his feet.
Then, as the autumn days draw in and the tourists start to leave, food is more difficult to come by. But winter is worse: winter is a cold, lonely time - a time of danger and constant hunger. And as the Christmas lights twinkle in the town below, and the warm smells from the kitchens drift upwards on the icy air, who will remember the cat on the hill?
Fans of 'Saving Sinbad', also set in St Ives, will recognise some of the characters in this moving and beautifully illustrated tale that follows a stray cat's fortunes through the seasons. It will surely join Michael Foreman's 'Cat In The Manger' as a family favourite throughout the year - and especially, perhaps, at Christmas . . .
