Beschreibung

Two gangs of cats live in a scrap yard on the edge of the city. When they're not eating or sleeping, they're fighting, and that's just how The Whisperer likes it. He's a rat, and if he can keep the cats going after each other, they'll leave him and his kind alone. But just maybe, things in the scrap yard are about to change for the better. Or as The Whisperer sees it--for the worse! Marking a design departure for Nick Butterworth, this edgy picture book features his trademark, high-quality illustration viewed through dark panels and large-scale urban foreground detail.
