Toto the Ninja Cat and the Superstar Catastophe

Toto is no ordinary cat. After months of keeping London safe from notorious animal bad guys, Toto the Ninja Cat is going on a well-earned holiday to the world’s most famous music festival – Catstonbury!

But a villain has a dastardly plan to hypnotise the crowd when a world-famous band is on stage, turning them into evil minions. How can Toto possibly prevent the catastrophe when everyone thinks the band is the cat’s pyjamas?

It will take all Toto’s ninja skills – and some help from a friendly otter – to save the day…

Ideal for reading aloud or for children to curl up with and read alone, the story features brilliant black-and-white illustrations throughout. With gentle themes of friendship, inclusivity and winning in the face of adversity, this is a hilarious must-read for all animal-loving kids!

Our Review Panel says...

This is Dermot O’Leary’s third book in the Toto series, inspired by his own cats rescued from Italy as strays. Just like her real-life counterpart, Toto the cat is almost completely blind. Together with her brother Silver, the cats exist in an exciting world where London’s animals come into their own at night and operate in a highly-organised society that humans barely notice, including riding on the tube, consuming beverages from award-winning milkbars, attending music festivals and tracking down criminals (like fraudulent guinea-pigs and safe-cracking gangs of eels). Toto and Silver are becoming well-known for their ninja-style successes in fighting the animal world’s criminal networks.
