The Cat from Muzzle: a High-country Cat's Incredible Walk Home

Author(s): Sally Sutton

NZ Picture Books

Dwayne is a rumble-tumble tabby cat who knows where he belongs - up on the farm at Muzzle Station.

So, when he's taken to live far away in the town of Kaikoura, what's a cat to do? Shake the dust off his paws and start walking, of course!

The trouble is, home is a very long way away . . .

With a bouncy readaloud story by Sally Sutton and witty illustrations by Scott Tulloch, The Cat From Muzzle is a true tale of feline audacity that will delight readers the world over.

Sasha's Review:

You've heard of the Cat who came back? Well, he's not a patch on Dwayne, who journeyed over land, river and mountain to get back to the remote Muzzle Station after his family moved with him to Kaikoura.

He turned up on his old patch after several weeks and Sutton has imagined his journey fair (and foul!) in rhyming verse. Dwayne's exact route and methods of travel aren't exactly known, but I'll bet he ran into some pretty colourful characters not unlike the ones in this book.
