Miss Hazeltine’s Home for Shy and Fearful Cats by Alicia Potter, illustrated by Birgitta Sif

The conquering of fear is celebrated in this stunning book from two rising stars of picture book making – Kate Greenaway shortlisted Birgitta Sif and Alicia Potter.

From Kate Greenaway shortlisted illustrator Birgitta Sif and acclaimed new author, Alicia Potter, comes a tale with many tails, perfect for cat lovers everywhere! This book is full of scaredy cats. Cats terrified of mice, cats frightened of birds; cats who can’t pounce, cats who won’t purr. Miss Hazeltine takes them all into her Home for Shy and Fearful Cats and she teaches them everything she knows: “Bird Basics”, “How Not to Fear the Broom” and how to “Hold your tails high! Arch your backs! Think good thoughts!” But under the bed hides nervous little Crumb… Will Miss Hazeltine be able to help the most shy and fearful kitty of them all? Stunningly illustrated by Birgitta Sif, this is a story about conquering your fears, being brave and finding your moment to shine.

    Nice flip on the life and nature of cats from Kate Greenway – honey would never be in such need – one bird and two mice in the last fortnight :-/
    Beautifully realised by Birgitta Sif
