The Cat with Iron Claws

The Cat with Iron Claws 2012

An illustrated re-telling of the wild and wonderful tale of Palug’s Cat. Coll the swineherd is commanded by the Blind King told to look after the huge white sow, Henwen. But she escapes and rampages over Wales, giving birth to three good things, and three bad. And the worst of all is a tiny kitten, which grows into a monster so terrible that only the greatest warrior in Arthur’s court is brave enough to fight against it.

Catherine Fisher has reconstructed parts of the old legend, in this fun, fierce, fantastical adaption for children.
