A much-anticipated, beautiful new edition of a modern classic, this is the stunningly illustrated story of the seaside village of Mousehole, Cornwall, where Mowzer the cat lives happily with old fisherman Tom. Their life is a happy one - until one terrible winter the Great Storm-Cat comes clawing and snarling and leaping at the harbour walls, so that boat can go out to sea to fish. Soon, with Christmas coming, there is food left in Mousehole. It is then that Mowzer and Tom set out to brave the fury of the waves together, and discover that it might just need a cat's perspective to understand - and tame - the ferocious ways of the Great Storm-Cat sea...Gently yet powerfully told, this incredibly moving story of bravery, sacrifice and companionship inspired by Cornish legend is sure to connect with readers of all ages, new and old alike.
