When the shopkeeper gives Jenny a skinny, black kitten she has no idea who she has adopted.
Fankle is no ordinary cat. The fiercely clever feline has lived six lives so far: lives of adventure, danger, fortune and poverty.
He's stared down angry pirates, started a blood feud, won a war, advised an empress and leapt onto the moon.
Fankle tells Jenny tales of his former lives -- with the king of pirates, in ancient Egypt and even with the Empress of China.
So what is he doing living in a crofter's cottage in Orkney?
This classic novel by George Mackay Brown is a rich and rewarding read for adults and children alike.
