Tabby McTat loves his life on the streets with his owner, Fred, singing (and caterwauling) for coins that people throw in Fred’s hat. But one day, Fred is in an accident, and the two are separated! Will Tabby and Fred find their way back to each other?

From the creators of The Gruffalo and Stick Man, Tabby McTat is a touching story of friendship, loyalty, singing — and kittens!
