Down by the harbour the quayside cat, Jim, comes to talk with Old Tregarn about his days long ago at sea. Inspired by Old Tregarn's tales, Jim longs for his own sea adventure. Before long the two cats have jumped aboard a ship, and so begins Jim's daring adventure at sea...
Toby Forward's poetic sea-faring tale is complemented perfectly by Ruth Brown's stunning illustrations.
