"A beguiling tale that sticks in the memory. The cat's whiskers" (The Sunday Times)
"Stylish, original and inventive, Varjak Paw is a modern children's classic"
"Dazzling" (The New York Times)
"The book is compulsive reading; we are with Varjak every step of his way, willing him to succeed. Independent readers of 9 upwards will treasure it, not least for its illustrations, and some will camp out on the publisher's doorstep for the sequel" (Ann Hay, The School Librarian)
"The cat magic mystique is brilliant" (Richard Adams Author of Watership Down)

But, things are about to change as the man with the two fearsome black cats enters their lives. The family turn their backs on whatever dangers they may bring, but the Elder Paw tells Varjak of the Way and that it is time to venture over the high walls enclosing their world, and bring help from Outside.
So begins Varjak’s journey into a dangerous new world, where he has a lot to learn about survival, the Way and himself.
Effortlessly blending adventure and mystery with the philosophy of martial arts, this is a compelling journey of self-discovery. Dave McKean’s illustrations add to the intensity of SF Said’s gritty tale. Long may Varjak Paw keep the Way alive!
Great for fans of Michelle Paver, Derek Landy, Philip Reeve and Robin Jarvis.
If you read this book, I think you might explode with so much inspiration or jump out of your skin screaming 'This is fantastic'
