Toto is no ordinary cat, and she can’t wait for you to join her on her THIRD ninja adventure! After months of keeping London safe from notorious animal bad guys, Toto the Ninja Cat is going on a well-earned holiday to the world’s most famous music festival – Catstonbury!But a villain has a dastardly plan to hypnotise the crowd when a world-famous band is on stage, turning them into evil minions. How can Toto possibly prevent the catastrophe when everyone thinks the band is the cat’s pyjamas? It will take all Toto’s ninja skills – and some help from a friendly otter – to save the day… Ideal for reading aloud or for children to curl up with and read alone, the story features brilliant black and white illustrations throughout.
With gentle themes of friendship, inclusivity and winning in the face of adversity, this is a hilarious must-read for all animal-loving kids! The hardback edition features paw-print endpapers and a superstar inner-cover hidden beneath the jacket – making it a brilliant gift for young readers. From one of the UK’s best-loved broadcasters, theToto series is purrfect for fans of The Aristocats, The Secret Life of Pets and Atticus Claw Breaks the Law. Dermot says: ‘The idea for Toto first came to me when my wife and I rescued two stray cats from an olive grove in Italy.
One of them, Toto, has been blind from birth, but we quickly realised she had ninja-like reactions. Like a lot of cat owners (or cat servants), we like to imagine our pets having secret lives when we’re out or asleep. So before I knew it I was writing about Toto and her brother Silver’s nocturnal adventures around London.
I really hope that children who pick it up enjoy reading the adventures of our little Italian underdog (cat).’Have you read Toto’s other adventures: The Great Snake Escape and The Incredible Cheese Heist?
