The Pawed Piper

By Michelle Robinson
Illustrated by Chinlun Lee

The legend of the Pied Piper gets an adorably feline twist.

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 Goodnight Tractor author Michelle Robinson and is brought beautifully to life by 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 and the author of Goodnight Tractor and How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth.
