Excerpt

before you could
count ONE, TWO, THREE,
cut right through the rope.

3

How many Lives has the Cat got?

EIGHT!
But, when she was rounder,
A boy tried to drown her;
So how many Lives has the Cat got?

4

Yes, a boy tried to drown her
When fatter and rounder,
But, as you would wish,
She slipped the stone off her neck,
and before you could count,
ONE, TWO, THREE, swam
like a fish.

5

How many Lives has the Cat got?

SEVEN!
But, as I have learnt,
Poor Pussy was burnt.

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
