Download Chapter One: meet Tommy, The Theatre Cat
'Full of warmth and oozing with character, Maureen Potter has followed advice given to so many aspiring writers 'write about something you know'. Through the eyes of Tommy she has written about the magical backstage life of the theatre that readers young and old will find fascinating. David Rooney's black-and-white scraperboard-style illustrations are as atmospheric as the text.'
'Not only can she entertain in pantomime, she can also tell a good story.'
'Manages to convey the magic of theatre and the spirit of Maureen all at once.'
