Synopsis

When Fraser Met Billy by Louise Booth

Reviews

Heart-warming... No cat-lover will be surprised by the story of how a grey and white rescue cat called Billy wove his feline magic around Fraser... Billy's is one of quiet, enigmatic triumph. Even without the uplifting element of child-animal bonding, I would feel humbled as well as educated by the human stories of what life with a child who is 'different
entails

. * Daily Mail * The way in which Billy the cat encourages his friend Fraser is just amazing. Truly inspiring. * James Bowen, author of A STREET CAT NAMED BOB *
