A fun rhyming story, great for reading aloud with wonderful graphic artwork.



How About a Night Out? Synopsis

In rollicking rhyme, an adventurous kitty invites his friends for a night-time romp in the busy city.

We’ll swoon to the moon

If the moon is out.

We’ll have a night

To sing about. We’ll catercall

Upon the wall

And never worry if we fall.

‘Delivered in jaunty rhyming couplets and Matt Hunt's alluring art showing the cat's journey against the inky dark sky, this will surely please early years listeners.’ – Red Reading Hub
