Tatty Catty Book Launch

Updated: Sep 24, 2020

Last weekend Susannah and I had our very first book launch for Marigold Books. It was wonderful! Lots of children's arrived, listened to book readings, made pirate hats and a few even won some spot prizes (including a very cute, custom made Tatty Catty mug and coaster).

The launch was held at Poppies bookstore in New Plymouth, a great (and dangerous with all of their beautiful books for sale) shop that also supports local authors. They were very kind to let us make a great deal of noise and confusion in their store for an hour or two!

We were even visited by a special guest, the majestic Meiko. Susannah's sister brought him along and he was an instant hit with the children.....and the adults!

About the book:

'Tatty Catty is a Children's book about a ragamuffin cat who longs to sail the sea. With her crooked tail and tatty fur, Tatty Catty has a dream. She longs to explore the wide blue sea. The sailors tell her she’s too small, but Tatty has a surprise in store. She might just be a pirate cat!'
