Maya and Cat

By Caroline Magerl
Illustrated by Caroline Magerl

Maya and Cat is an inspiring picture book about friendship and resilience from one of Australia’s most renowned author–illustrators.

On a roof, as wet as a seal, as grey as a puddle, Cat was rumbling, a rumbly purr. What does Cat want most? Feather boas? Pretty pink shoelaces? A boatful of fish under a tiny tin sail – or perhaps something much more valuable? Affectionate and evocative, Maya and Cat follows a child’s kindly impulse to an unexpected conclusion.

  • Caroline Magerl is a renowned author/illustrator whose stunning artwork has been exhibited widely overseas and in Australia.
  • This is an inspiring picture book about friendship, resilience and problem-solving.
  • The perfect book for preschool-aged children who love being read to, and the parents, grandparents and teachers who love sharing stories with the children in their care.
