Publisher's Summary

Suzy is a small striped cat with long white whiskers who lives in a French seaside village with a fisherman and his four sons. She likes living in France, chasing butterflies and being stroked the wrong way. She doesn't like straying too far from home. But like all cats, Suzy is very inquisitive - which causes problems when she climbs into the basket of a hot-air balloon, falls asleep, and is carried up, up, and away over the Channel to England!

I'm a cat lover and I loved it!

I just bought this audiobook tonight and I've already listened to it, I have just finished it and had to come and review it.

It's a brilliant cat story and as a cat lover I enjoy every moment, I am going to love listening to it again and I think my husband will love it too as he is also a cat lover.

Great narrator, she did a brilliant job and made this audiobook so enjoyable to listen too!

Highly recommended for all cat lovers, both young and old (I'm in my twenties!). Great length for before bed and enjoyable from start to finish!

The book is about a cat from France, that gets taken to the UK by a member of her family. She (the cat) wants to go back to France and starts her journey to get back there. So much determination and she never gives up, it's so funny and you can't help but love her as she tries everything...even trying going out to sea on a surf board!!!

Brilliant, I love this book and well worth buying - best money I spent!

Jill Tomlinson at her best, perfectly read.

Lovely adventure story about a cat that accidentally ends up in England and wants desperately to get back to France. Original and funny with some interesting little bits for kids to learn along the way, including a few French words.

We love Jill Tomlinson's books, but I think this could be a firm favourite.
