The Girl, the Cat and the Navigator sets sail today!

On a day where the deluge is almost enough to create a sea right outside the Bell Lomax Moreton offices, we’re thrilled to see The Girl, the Cat and the Navigator launch on its voyage to shelves today!

An enchanting, charming story of bravery on the ice-tipped ocean. Curious, pin-bright Oona Britt dreams of setting sail with her ship’s captain father for a life of excitement on the wild waves.

She has read stories of a magical creature – the Nardoo – who swims through the stars at night, and stows away on whaling boat the Plucky Leopard for an adventure full of myths and marvel among the ice-caps.

With illustrations by our very own supremely talented Anuska Allepuz on every page, we can’t wait for readers of all ages to discover this magical and charming tale penned in beautiful style by Matilda Woods!
