The Cat and the King

Welcome to Sally's book-a-day-for-2017 blog. If unfamiliar with the blog, scroll down.

The Cat and the King (Post 111)

The Cat and the King (1988), has forty words. What? Forty words still makes it a book! It has characters, (the cat and the king), a setting (the king's throne room), a plot (growing friendship) and a theme (friends are equal) and a teaching point (language modelling and showcasing of a well-known maxim.

The cat may look at a king... from all sorts of aspects, and as you see, the looking is perfectly welcome.

The Cat and the King is probably still my shortest published book.

About the Blog 

Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service, post a comment and I'll get back to you.
