Orlando is a snob.

He drinks cream, not milk. He won’t eat ordinary fish. Oh no! He eats salmon!

But what happens when he has to catch mice?


Panda 32

Patrick Deeley is a teacher and poet. He has three books of poems to his name from Dedalus Press, with a fourth due next year. He also runs a workshop in Ballyfermot, specialising in children's poetry. Originally from Loughrea, County Galway, he has spent more than half his life teaching in Dublin.

Tatyana Feeney grew up in North Carolina, where she spent much of her childhood reading and drawing. This developed into a love of art and particularly illustrations in children's books, so she gave up her ambition to be a fire girl and studied Art History and Illustration.

Tatyana now lives in Trim with her husband and two children. She is the author and illustrator of Small Bunny's Blue Blanket, Little Owl's Orange Scarf, Little Frog's Tadpole Trouble and Small Elephant's Bathtime. Tatyana has illustrated several Panda books with The O'Brien Press and is the author and illustrator of Socks for Mr Wolf

'his tale of a cat too posh to catch mice flows along smoothly with a good come-uppance for his snobbery'

Evening Echo

'an utterly delightful story. Deliciously enhanced by wonderfully smudgy illustrations that, with the use of only a few lines, absolutely bubble with expressive emotion'

Books Ireland

'A simple story ideal for children starting to read on their own and the raw illustrations help to keep the children's interest.'
