'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.
