About The Book

Brina, a city cat, moved to the mountains with the owners for a summer holiday. Here she meets some stray cats who call themselves “The Gang of the Feline Sun". The new friends convince her to escape her owners and become a free cat. But while Brina enjoys her newfound freedom and all the new types of delectable bugs the countryside has to offer, her young owners are panicking over losing her, a member of their family. Brina must make a choice to live with her owners, where it’s safe (but confined) or go free in the wilderness. A heartwarming tender cat tale.

Raves and Reviews

“Cornia’s bright, expressive, animation-inspired art in this Italian-import graphic novel is the main attraction of this series opener”

– Kirkus Reviews

“Italian author Salati (Disney Hamlet, Starring Donald Duck) tells an endearing tale that explores the meaning of freedom and familial bonds”

– Kirkus Reviews

“This is worth purchasing for the setting alone– those mountains! I’d be glad to go even if I had to be in a cage. This is a sweet story, and mirrors how I think my dog would feel if taken to the mountains. This will be wildly popular in middle schools where graphic novels circulate well.”

– Karen Yingling, Librarian
