How About a Night Out?

by Sam Williams, Matt Hunt
Longlisted for the UKLA Book Awards

In rollicking rhyme, an adventurous kitty invites his friends for a night-time romp in the busy city.

We'll swoon to the moon if the moon is out.
We'll have a night to sing about.
We'll catercall upon the wall
And never worry if we fall.
"... a vibrant nocturnal adventure ..."

"Williams and Hunt depict the nocturnal lives of urban felines in this jazzy rhyming story."
Publishers Weekly

"This is a superb book for early years, full of fabulous rhymes and two completely engaging and lovable brave cat characters who join us on a journey across the night-time urban landscape."
Read it Daddy

"Delivered in jaunty rhyming couplets and Matt Hunt's alluring art showing the cat's journey against the inky dark sky, this will surely please early years listeners."
Red Reading Hub

"An ideal class book to share at story time."
