An extraordinary and heart-warming story about one brave cat's experiences during World War Two from prize-winning author Robert Westall.

She made her way down the cliff, and on to the beach. At the edge of the waves, she stopped, shaking her wet paws. She knew that somewhere ahead was her person, but far, far away. She miaowed plaintively; stood staring at the moving blur of uncrossable sea.

She led the way to safety, out of the blazing hell of blitzed Coventry. People touched her for luck; feared her as an omen of disaster. Wherever she went, she changed lives . . .

From her beginning to her end she never wavered.

She was the Blitzcat.

Blitzcat by Robert Westall is the Smarties Prize-winning book about one brave cat's experiences during World War Two. Now with a brilliant new cover look and including an extended author biography.

Industry Reviews

"Sensitive readers will realize at once that the story of Lord Gort is one of those tales that, once begun, demands to be finished. . . . Each of these glimpses of men and women in wartime is as perfect as a pearl; Lord Gort's journey is the single black thread on which the precious beads are strung."
Publishers Weekly

"Westall's writing has always been strong and vivid but he has rarely written as confidently as this."
