Cat and Penguin

Lucía Serrano
Oriol Garcia Molsosa

"A tale for first-time readers that tells the tender and fun story of an unexpected friendship and the pure joy of sharing that which we most love (even a sardine!)"

Cat is quite a grumbling character. He is not used to making plans and never expects guests since having them over is something he despises. That’s why he is surprised when one day, an unexpected visitor arrives at his home. It’s eight o’clock when Cat is about to eat his favourite dinner, a sardine! Suddenly, someone knocks on the door, and when he opens it, he finds himself in front of a penguin with a big backpack coming into his home without asking, hoping to spend the night. But how will two so distinct animals understand each other? Luckily, both love sardines! Will this be the beginning of a long friendship?
