Too Many Cats!

by Maura Finn, illustrated by Lucinda Gifford

Percy is a dog with a bone to pick: there are just too many cats in his house! They scratch the armchairs. They hog the heater. They blame Percy for their mess. This just can’t go on! There are TOO MANY CATS!

But when Percy finally manages to get some peace and quiet, he realises that he might have made a tiny mistake …

With rollicking rhyme by Maura Finn and hilarious illustrations by Lucinda Gifford, Too Many Cats is the perfect gift for dog-lovers and cat-lovers alike.

About the Author

Born and raised in New Zealand, Maura Finn now lives in Melbourne with her husband and two young daughters. In her early writing days, she ran a rather lucrative playground business, swapping tailor-made poems for lunchbox leftovers. Now, many years later, she has rediscovered the joy and value of picture books through sharing them with her own children, and is delighted to think that her stories may contribute to other children’s love of reading.

About the Illustrator

Lucinda Gifford is a children’s book author and illustrator based in Melbourne Australia. She has illustrated more than 30 books, including seven that she has written. Lucinda spends a lot of time drawing in front of an audience. She draws in notebooks, on digital screens, on easels and on huge bits of cartridge paper stuck to the walls and windows. When she’s not drawing in front of people, she writes and illustrates books in her studio in Melbourne.
