The Pawed Piper

By Michelle Robinson
Illustrated by Chinlun Lee

I wanted a cat to cuddle ... A great big furry fluffball like the cat in my book...

The leading lady of this tale longs for a pet cat to cuddle and call her own – a furry fluffball, just like the one in her book. So, after studying her grandma’s cat, Hector, she lays a trail with all the things that she knows cats love – balls of wool, saucers of milk, cardboard boxes and catnip aplenty. And then she waits for a cat to come… The legend of The Pied Piper gets an adorably feline twist in this new story from Michelle Robinson and illustrator Chinlun Lee.

  • A story for cat lovers and any child who has ever wanted a pet of their very own.
  • Michelle Robinson wrote this story specifically for Chinlun Lee – because Chinlun’s house in Tapei, Taiwan, is designed for, and overflowing with, CATS!
  • Michelle Robinson is an advertiser turned writer who has had huge success with Goodnight Tractor and How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth.
