An adventurous tale of two mischievous cats in a predicament — their love for fish leads to an unscheduled journey in their owners’ dinghy. Will anyone notice them floating into the estuary?

The owner of the boat might not be on to it, but the neighbourhood kids are! Spying Fluff and Scout floating about, one of them posts on the Internet: ‘Do you know whose cats are these? Get in touch and HURRY please!’

Thank goodness Mum uses social media. Scout and Fluff are saved when the Joneses jump in their kayaks and set off to save their moggies. Bob Darroch’s vibrant and jam-packed illustrations hilariously depict Fluff and Scout’s adventures at sea.
• Hilarious misadventures of the Jones family cats, who take an unexpected journey to sea
• Second story by Joan Joass, author of The Longdrop, again with brilliant illustrations by well-known artist, Bob Darroch
