Six Lives of Fankle the Cat
Also available as: Paperback
All cats have nine lives but Fankle’s are running out — especially when Tom Strynd threatens to drown him. Rescued by Jenny Thomson, whose mother hates cats, his life expectancy seems limited, until fate intervenes.
But Fankle is no ordinary cat: he can talk. As he settles down to a new life in Orkney, he tells the rip-roaring adventures of his past lives.
