Presents! Games! Cake! Everyone loves a party, right?
Well, not everyone. And definitely not Kit.
It’s more than a cat can bear! All Kit wants is a quiet place to hide away from the noise. And maybe he’s not the only one . . .
A shout-out (whisper) to the not-so-loud, with treats for every kind of party guest.
Cats do not like Birthdays
Nicki Greenberg is a writer and illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. Her first books, The Digits series, were published when she was fifteen years old. She later spent ten years disguised as a lawyer, while maintaining a not-so-secret Other Life as a comics artist and children’s book author.
In 2008 Nicki’s innovative graphic adaptation of The Great Gatsby was selected as a White Raven at the Bologna Book Fair. She then went on to tackle Hamlet in a lavish 425-page ‘staging on the page’. Hamlet was joint winner of the 2011 Children’s Book Council of Australia Picture Book of the Year award.
Inspired by her own young children, Nicki now dedicates most of her ink to books for younger readers. Her favourite activity is making books, but when she does manage to tear herself away from the desk Nicki loves to crochet bizarre sea creatures.
