Product Description

In The Secret Cat, written and illustrated by Katarina Stomgard, Lucy desperately wants a pet but her mother is dead set against it. Mom says, "We don't have enough space in our apartment," and "Grandma is allergic." Lucy is so disappointed, until when she's in bed waiting for sleep she hears a quiet scratching at the wall and discovers a secret cat who wants to be her pet. Lucy and Silvring discover all the other secret pets in the city and have a grand adventure in the city, but in the end have to return home at the end of the night. In the morning light, Silvring is gone, along with all the other secret animals of the city, and Lucy discovers that the secret pets only come out at night, waiting for someone to whisper, "Come out!"

Publisher's Description

An imaginative book for anyone who’s ever wanted a pet

Lucy wants a pet more than anything, even though her mom always says no. But one night, Lucy hears a scratching sound from behind her wallpaper, and a ghostly cat named Silvring appears. Silvring takes Lucy on an adventure and introduces her to a world filled with secret pets just like hers. Not all the secret pets are as friendly as Silvring, though.

Filled with magical realism, this beautiful book will resonate with animal lovers of all ages.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
"The watercolor-and-ink illustrations are skillfully rendered in deep blue and pink tones that effectively carry readers into Lucy's nighttime fantasy, Silvring often just a suggestion of blue daubs on lighter blue. The story's intense emotions of longing are impressively real."
