Meet Toto: she’s no ordinary cat, and she can’t wait to have an adventure with you! Join Toto for a funny animal escapade written by one of the UK’s best-loved broadcasters. For fans of The Aristocats, The Secret Life of Pets, 101 Dalmatians and Atticus Claw Breaks the Law. Purrfect 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! Toto the cat and her brother Silver live footloose and fancy-free in a townhouse in London. Toto is almost totally blind, and learned to trust her senses from a ninja cat-master who taught her back in Italy where they were born. By day, Toto and Silver seem to be ordinary cats, but by night, they love to have adventures! One evening, news reaches Toto that a king cobra has escaped from London Zoo! Together with help from a very posh cat and two hungry tigers, Toto and Silver must investigate., Can they find the giant snake, before it’s too late? 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).’

You’ve got to love a ninja cat! I bought this to try to encourage my 6 year old son to read more. We read through it together first and from the very first page my son was hooked. We finished this brilliant book this morning and my son is now lying on the sofa, attempting to read words like ‘banished’ by himself. Thank you Dermot for this brilliant book!

Luckily, despite being blind, Toto is secretly a ninja…
