Grandmother Cat

£2.99

Product description

"Against a contemporary Californian setting, Elizabeth Coatsworth tells a timeless story of a special friendship. The trust and affection that exists between Dave and Grandmother Cat is extended, one summer, to include a man who calls himself the Hermit.
The Hermit has little use for most of mankind, but between him and the wild life of the region is a relationship of acceptance and love.
The Hermit has much to teach Dave, and, surprisingly, much to learn from him. When the summer is over, both of them have realized that life does not stand still, and they are ready for the growth and change that comes to all living things."

Unclipped wrapper, with some dicolouration on the inside. Light green boards, with some foxing on the prelims. Clean pages with a good binding.
