Castaway Cats is the rhyming story of 15 soggy cats tossed into the sea from their sinking ship. After washing upon the shore of a deserted island, and with no rescue boat in sight, they are forced to come up with plan B - building their own boat. The cats’ varying ages, breeds, and strong personalities make for plenty of squabbles, heated cat fights and minimal progress.
Upon recognizing that their survival depends on their cooperation, the cats slowly begin to rally, taking stock of their situation, communicating and working together and essentially become a family. The cast of characters is eclectic and eccentric, each cat boasting a distinct personality and fanciful attire. Add in the gorgeous illustrations and it’s a tale worth reading about animals who may be different but find common ground and friendship through their adversity.
