The Ship's Cat


Alan Aldridge & Richard Adams

It’s such a great thing that Alan Aldridge turned his hand to illustrating children’s books. The master graphic designer behind the Beatles imagery and famous 1970’s science fiction Penguin covers, Aldridge teams up with Richard Adams (Watership Down) to create this boisterous tale about a Ship’s Cat who rises above the rest. Children will love exploring all the fine details and peculiar facial expressions of the Ship’s mates. Parents will find it a challenge to keep the rhyme in time and explain some of the more unusual words present in the prose. For ages 6 and over.
