'On a cold Christchurch morning, while the city was sleeping, before the birds roused him with twitters and cheeping, curled up on the end of his friend Emma's bed, Tiger woke with a start ...and a feeling of dread. Tiger fled from the house with a leap and a bound as, louder than thunder, from deep underground, came a roar and a shudder and terrible shaking! Around him, the city was rolling and quaking.'
The Canterbury earthquake affected children in so many ways - homes gone, playgrounds destroyed, schools damaged, pets missing, favourite books and toys lost.
Quaky Cat is a picture book for children throughout New Zealand - an uplifting story that will touch hearts.
Includes comments on the earthquake by Bob Parker, Margaret Mahy, and Jason Gunn.
50% of the net proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Canterbury charities.

4 of 5 Stars! '

All the New Entrant children who began at our school in 2010 received a copy of this book at the end of the year. Our 5 year old was delighted to receive it and to have it read to him. It is very much a rhyming story which is lovely for the adult reader, but can sometimes make some of the language a bit tricky for the younger child listening for the first few times. Our 5 year old loved the ending of the story in particular. A wonderful piece of history for those families who experienced Christchurch's earthquake.
