Long Haired Cat-Boy Cub

Etgar Keret
AGE: 4-7

It all begins at the zoo, continues on an airship and ends at 17, Stempepper Street—the natural habitat of a long haired cat-boy cub.
In between, a boy has airborne adventures with the fiery skipper and his monkey helpers, rescuing animals and discovering the cat-cub inside himself.
And here’s our hero back home, waving a notebook with some useful advice on how to handle this special animal.
Long Haired Cat-Boy Cub is a clever and heart-warming tale about the boundless ingenuity of a child’s imagination and how to get through to one’s parents.

Aviel Basil is a young award-winning illustrator.
