I Was Made For You

By David Lucas
Illustrated by David Lucas

Cat knows who made him, but he doesn't know why – follow him on an adventure of self-discovery.

Cat was knitted by Mum out of the softest, fluffiest wool, and wrapped in shiny paper and a big, pink ribbon… but why was he made? When you are brand new, the world is full of questions, and if you are brave it can be full of answers too. Cat asks the wind, the stars and the trees for help, but it is only when he discovers love that he also finds his purpose.

  • Lucas deftly weaves a tale that will capture children's imagination, while also introducing philosophical questions such as why we are here, and how do we determine who we are.
  • Lucas has been named on of the UK's ten Best New Illustrators by Booktrust and has worked with design-led luminaries such as NoBrow.
  • With the double hook of Christmas and Valentines day, this will be a year-round favourite.
