This title features purrfect tales about fab furry felines from celebrated author Linda Newbery. When Simon's family moves home he is baffled by the elderly lady next-door, who has the rather strange habit of talking to her plants. Then one night, as he watches her calling into her garden, she is surrounded by shadowy, purring forms, and he realizes that only he can see this ghostly neighbour and her spooky feline friends. However, there is one special, smoky ghost-cat, Blue, who never comes when called. Simon is determined to reunite the smoke cat with his spectral neighbour, but every time he calls for Blue, the cat simply disappears. Will Simon uncover the secrets planted in his neighbour's garden in this haunting cat tale? "Curl up with Cat Tales", a charming collection of stand-alone stories, which are at turns magical, mysterious, comic and touching.
