Book of the week: Quaky Cat

Helping Quake Victims

Jodi Mitchell
24 January 2011

“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 by Diana Noonan and Gavin Bishop is a picture book for children throughout New Zealand – to bring comfort to those who experienced the earthquake, and understanding to the children who didn’t.

50% of the net profits from the sale of this book will be donated to Christchurch charities, and it was produced using all Christchurch businesses. A free copy will also be given to all Year 1 and Year 2 children in the Christchurch area.

Buy it online from Fishpond or from booksellers nationwide (RRP $19.50)
