An enchanting new chapter book for children, from number one bestselling author Matt Haig and featuring illustrations throughout by the award-winning Emily Gravett.
Evie is a little girl with a special talent. She can talk to animals. But when she rescues the school rabbit Gerald, and sets him free, Evie lands in big trouble.
She promises her dad never to talk to animals again. For a whole year, Evie ignores them all. She doesn’t chat to the birds and dogs. She even ignores a little, silver tabby cat who miaows: ‘Help me! Help me!’.
But when Evie sees the same silver kitten on a missing poster, she secretly starts using her magical gift again.
Soon she discovers that this cat isn’t the only animal to have gone missing in town. And if Evie won’t find them, who will?
