No one told this little cutie that curiosity killed the cat! When she snoops into a builder’s van, she ends up very far from home… Amber’s parents are having building work done. They can’t wait to see the results – but Amber’s tiny kitten is full of questions. Why are so many people coming and going? What are all those vans and trucks for? And – most exciting of all – what could be inside them…? This little kitten can’t wait to find out. So one day, she sneaks into one of the vans. But when it drives off with her inside it, she finds herself lost! Where on earth is she? How will she get home? Will she ever see Amber again…?
