Sometimes a book comes along which makes you think, and makes you realise how lucky we are.

This is one such book, based on a true story. It follows a cat called Waverley whose owner is sent to war, leaving Waverley at the train station. There he is looked after, until Donald comes home a broken man.

This is one book that definitely needs reading at school.

What a truly beautiful book. It tells the story of finding a way through sadness, and learning to be compassionate. 

The pictures are out of this world. 

They are truly beautiful, they are drawn with love and there is so much detail in them
