Here’s a book I worked on night and day for a month to get it ready for print and we are so very proud of it, not only because it’s about a gorgeous fluffy cat, but one who survived Cyclone Gabrielle and every copy sold will raise much-needed funds for the Hawke’s Bay Foundation to assist in the Cyclone Gabrielle recovery effort!
Written by Catherine Robertson and published by Penguin Random House.
Pearl in a Whirl
The true story of one fluffy cat’s wild, windy week.
A tale of chaos and courage, ruin and rescue, as Pearl’s home – like so many others – was ravaged by Cyclone Gabrielle.
Pearl loved doing all her favourite things: swatting the dog, slurping tap water, hiding in bags, and curling up to sleep.
But one Monday night, with a whoosh and a whirl, her comfortable life was turned upside-down …
Pearl’s family home in Puketapu, in Hawke’s Bay, was destroyed by Cyclone Gabrielle and it took a week for her to be reunited with her family, as the community came together in the aftermath of one of New Zealand’s worst weather events. Written by bestselling author Catherine Robertson, with illustrations by Fifi Colston, every copy sold will raise much-needed funds for the Hawke’s Bay Foundation to assist in the Cyclone Gabrielle recovery effort.
