This cat must learn to fight! Varjak Paw is a Mesopotamian Blue kitten. He lives high up in an old house on a hill. He's never left home, but then his grandfather tells him about the Way - a secret martial art for cats.

'There are Seven Skills in the way of Jalal,' whispered the Elder Paw. 'We know only three of them. Their names are these. Slow-Time. Moving Circles. Shadow-walking.'

Now Varjak must use the Way to survive in a city full of dangerous dogs, cat gangs and, strangest of all, the mysterious Vanishings.

'A beguiling tale that sticks in the memory. The cat's whiskers.'  The Sunday Times

'The cat magic mystique is brilliant'  Richard Adams, author of Watership Down

'A story of finding your true strengths by learning to trust your instincts and think for yourself. Striking, edgy illustrations'  Financial Times
