Willow the wildcat kitten and her brother Corrie live in a cosy den in the forest with their mum. But then disaster strikes when a nosy sheepdog collapses their den. Can the kittens stop bickering long to learn how to work together and find a warm, safe new home?

Written in Lynne Rickards’ signature rhyme, this charming tale of two siblings learning to appreciate each other and work as a team features dynamic watercolour illustrations of Scottish wildlife and two wildcat kittens, which are endangered in Scotland.

From the author of best-selling Skye the Puffling and Rowan the Red Squirrel, Willow the Wildcat brings the beauty of the Scottish Highlands and its animal inhabitants to life.
