The Tobermory Cat 


Debi Gliori
Debi Gilori - The Tobermory Cat - Published By Birlinn Ltd (12 Oct 2012)
Once upon a time, in Tobermory on the beautiful isle of Mull, there lived a cat. Now, all around Mull were cats - some were wonderfully soft and woolly, some were great singers, others were experts in fishing and some were superbly sulky. Tourists flocked to see them and hear them, but in Tobermory the cats were just cats. One cat decided, though, he was going to be special to help the people of Tobermory but he found it was harder than he thought. That was until he got some very good advice from some special friends.

This Is Not My Hat 

 (I Want My Hat Back, book 0)


Jon Klassen
Jon Klassen - This Is Not My Hat - Published By Walker (9 Oct 2012)
When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), trouble could be following close behind. So it’s a good thing that enormous fish won’t wake up. And even if he does, it’s not like he’ll ever know what happened. . . . Visual humor swims to the fore as the best-selling Jon Klassen follows his breakout debut with another deadpan-funny tale.
