  3. Whistling Cat Books

    A charming story with unpretentious protagonists upholding old-fashioned values – hard work and a positive attitude pay off in the end. Jane-Anne Hodgson has found the formula for creating irresistible fiction for young readers, drawing them in and compelling them to read right through to the end.
