David Almond's first picture book for children explores transformation and magic...On a night rich with dreams, Kate wakes up and hears a cat. Spellbinding illustrations by Stephen Lambert combine with a brilliant text as Kate and the cat travel together through the starry night. 'Once, in a shining night, while the moon looked down and the stars glittered in the endless sky, and all the house was lost in dreams...the little girl woke and heard a cat. "Miaow," called the cat. "Miaow.'" David Almond is known for his subtle and intelligent imagination. This, his first picture book, demonstrates his briliance as a stoyteller - as he weaves together the dreams of Kate, the girl and her family...on a single night of magic.
