An enchanting retelling of a classic Old Irish poem, 'Pangur Ban', brought beautifully to life by the award-winning Sydney Smith, illustrator of Footpath Flowers. The monk in the poem leads a simple life - he studies his books late into the evening, searching for meaning. His cat, Pangur, leads a simple life, too, chasing his prey in the darkness. But as night turns to dawn, can each find what he seeks? Thoughtful readers will be enchanted by this elegant, classically-inspired story which pays tribute to the wisdom of animals and the wonders of the natural world.
