A classic narrative picture book about embracing change, from the talented creator of Welcome, Baby, to This World and the CBCA award-winning illustrator of Iceberg.
Big Cat is mysterious. Big Cat is chaotic. Big Cat is lawless.
Catherine is not. She likes things to be neat, tidy and orderly.
But when the two meet, they discover they have more in common than they think and that sometimes the best adventures can be found in your own backyard.
A story about finding your inner wildness in unexpected places, from one of Australia’s most exciting picture book creators.
