Meet a cat who is the king of his house, until something terrible happens! Someone else arrives and they are dribbly and disgusting. Will King Cat ever get used to having a dog around?

The King Cat is a brilliantly observed, fantastically funny story about friendship, compromise and adjusting to change, from the award-winning author-illustrator Marta Altés. Perfect for families about to welcome a new baby - and cat and dog lovers alike.
