Katje the Windmill Cat, Paperback

Katje the Windmill Cat Paperback

Illustrated by Nicola Bayley



This heroic tale was inspired by a true story that took place over 500 years ago.

It tells of Katje the windmill cat who lives happily with Nico, the miller, in a Dutch village by the sea.

But when Nico brings home his new bride, everything changes.

Katje is shooed away by Lena as she sweeps the house or when she finds Katje playing with the new baby.

Eventually poor Katje leaves her home and moves into the windmill.

But when a storm breaks the dike that holds back the sea, Katje performs a feat of extraordinary courage that makes her forever welcome in the house.
