Ginger the Gangster Cat

Ginger returns from the dead – to carry out the most cunning cat crime of the century. In Barcelona.

Ginger is not a happy cat.

He’s fat, he’s ugly, and he’s getting old.

He also lives in Surrey.

But Ginger’s days of mediocrity are over. His lifetime dream – his consuming cat-crime passion – is to go to Barcelona and score a whole lorry-load of tapas specialities from Tesco’s supermarket.

And when he meets poor little woebegone Sparky – the cutest cat in the universe – he sees his chance. “Nobody gives me nuffink!” has been his complaint, but Sparky is “luck on a stick” and Ginger does everything possible (including catching his mice) to gain his trust.

Sparky however is hopelessly attached to his litter tray. He does not want to go to Barcelona. He is happy right where he is, surrounded by eccentric Indian neighbours, scary Australian vets, dogs with no mouthwash, and amorous local tom-cats.

Ginger has a date with destiny. After 150 years, and who knows how many of his nine lives gone, he is going to meet the 16 gangster cats who ruined his last one. And he’s out for revenge.

What they said about Ginger

“I enjoyed reading this, it’s very sweet and charming.” Ruth Knowles, Commissioning Editor, Random House Children’s Books

“Our team of readers all seemed to have great fun reading about Ginger and Sparky! Everyone also felt the British voice was a great selling point compared to the slew of US animal books.” Genevieve Pegg, Commissioning Editor, Orion Books UK

NOTE: ‘Ginger the Buddha Cat’, the much-anticipated sequel, is now also on Amazon. Sausages or enlightenment? It’s a tough call for Ginger!
