About the Book

A vibrant, heartwarming graphic novel about two irresistible cat friends on a journey to find their forever home—a journey inspired by the magic of art and storytelling.

Cilla and Betto are two friends who need a place to call home. The docks in Valletta are too wet, and the scraps of food too scarce. The city's streets are too busy, and the humans too unreliable.

But what about the quiet garden from old kitten tales—a place where all cats are welcome, and the humans are always kind? Could the stories really be true?

As Cilla and Betto embark on a grand adventure to find out, they begin to spin a tale of their own—one that will take them through the art and stories of many journeyers who came before, and that will bring them to a surprising destination.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Such a gorgeous tale of friendship and an exploration of the power of story that feels both intimate and larger than life at the same time. The artwork is incredible, and I had to linger over every page to catch all the references and subtle grace notes. I’m never going to look at cats the same way again.” - Charlie Jane Anders, award-winning author of All the Birds in the Sky

“Works equally well as simple animal tale, metaphysical journey, or reimagining of classic artworks.” - Kirkus Reviews
