One night, when the lights go out at the toy museum, everyone runs off and hides. Left all on his own, Bunting, the sensible old toy cat, sets out to look for them. As he follows the trail of clues through the museum, the normally reserved Bunting learns how to have fun in this affectionate picture book from one of Britain's brightest new talents.
Lucas's books have been extravagantly praised by critics, both Halibut Jackson and The Lying Carpet have been hailed as 'classics', his picture book Whale was described as 'a masterpiece'.
His illustrations have been likened to Klee and Steinberg, the depth of his ideas compared to Kierkegaard.
But his books remain simple, warm-hearted fairytales, and like all good fairytales they have a timeless appeal for adults and children alike.
