It’s nighttime, mom and dad are gone. A little girl is at home, alone with her cat, and she can hear a storm coming. Her room is pitch dark. The cat gets closer and they listen to the wind in silence. Speaking to the cat, she grows braver. But when rain and thunders start banging on the roof, she wishes she was stronger. And suddenly the cat gets bigger and bigger until it turns into a majestic lion. A story about children’s fear and courage, about their secret bond with animals, written by Ingrid Bachér and illustrated by Rotraut Susanne Berner, Hans Christian Andersen Award winner in 2016.
