Tabby McTat

“Me, you and the old guitar. How perfectly, perfectly happy we are. MEEE-EW and the old guitar. How PURRRR-fectly happy we are!”

No cat can sing like Tabby McTat, Fred the guitar-playing busker’s cat. He loves to warble along as people throw coins in Fred’s hat! But one terrible day, Fred chases a thief, and the two are separated. Will they ever sing songs together again? From the world’s top picture book team comes this delightful rhyming tale of music, friendship, loyalty – and cats!
