Get the new edition!

lfc 25 oct2inst

The Last Free Cat was first published by Hodder in the UK in 2008 and a few years later by Albert Whitman in the US, where it was selected by the International Literacy Association for the Young Choices list – the best YA novels of the year.  With its passionate opposition to privatisation, the book was derided by supporters of Donald Trump but loved by just about everybody else (see reviews).  Several months ago I regained the rights to the book  and began making plans to republish it myself. I secured the services of  Rebecca Harry as illustrator, convinced she could produce the kind of cover the book had previously lacked. She did not disappoint, and the beautiful new volume, subtly revised from the first edition and also featuring interior illustrations, is now available.

Order here.

For the next three months I shall visit schools, libraries, bookshops or writers’ groups free of charge, and participants will not only get a talk all about the book but the opportunity of buying signed and dedicated copies at normal retail price.  If you are interested in this please contact me.
