This is the delightful tale of Fifi, the French cat, her separation from her mother, adoption by human parents and her adventures in her new life. It is a story which cat-lovers and their children will enjoy reading together, as the mannerisms and arrogance of cats is portrayed with reality and humour. Fifi relates her own story, inviting us to join her in her blissful life in Provence. In Part One, we learn about her growing up with humans, but always preferring the call of the wild. She describes the day when Agate, a neighbour's cat invades her privacy, how it affected her, and how a new member of the family, Agate's son, Shere Khan, is introduced into the household. Serious changes happen when Agate is killed by a car, and her dying wish was that Fifi would promise to look after her son, Shere Khan. Part Two unfolds the adventures of Fifi and her companions, in a search for Shere Khan. He had decided to run away to sea as a ship's cat. They encounter a rare breed of tiger in a zoo, who was stolen from a Maharajah living in Provence. He is assisted to escape and returned to his master, only after terrifying ordeals by Fifi and her companions. Fifi's search takes her through forests and water, encountering many dangers from both hunters and wild boar, until finally being reunited with Shere Khan as he is about to leave on a ship from Marseilles. Throughout the book, the beauty of Provence, its flora and fauna is captured through the eyes of Fifi. You will relate to every nuance of Fifi's emotions and fears, as she unfolds her story and draws the reader into her world.

The remarkable true story of a family who move into a rundown zoo-already a BBC documentary miniseries and excerpted in The Guardian. In the market for a house and an adventure, Benjamin Mee moved his family to an unlikely new home: a dilapidated zoo in the English countryside. Mee had a dream to refurbish the zoo and run it as a family business. His friends and colleagues thought he was crazy. But in 2006, Mee and his wife with their two children, his brother, and his 76-year-old mother moved into the Dartmoor Wildlife Park. Their extended family now included: Solomon, an African lion and scourge of the local golf course; Zak, the rickety Alpha wolf, a broadly benevolent dictator clinging to power; Ronnie, a Brazilian tapir, easily capable of killing a man, but hopelessly soppy; and Sovereign, a jaguar and would-be ninja, who has devised a long term escape plan and implemented it. Nothing was easy, given the family's lack of experience as zookeepers, and what follows is a magical exploration of the mysteries of the animal kingdom, the power of family, and the triumph of hope over tragedy. We Bought a Zoo is a profoundly moving portrait of an unforgettable family living in the most extraordinary circumstances.
