Betty has left home!

Betty has left home! But she’s only a hungry, lonely little cat, sailing along in a potty and fishing with her rod… She does get a bite, but it isn’t something to eat, just horrible stuff. And cats can’t eat rubbish. But what’s this on the end of her hook? It doesn’t look like rubbish – perhaps it’s a friend?

The nostalgic illustrations and collage from the 50ies and 60ies creates an enchanting, captivating, sometimes a little scary, but hopeful and inviting tone to be enjoyed by both young and old readers.


“The illustrations are filled with playful and cunning details that a child, and even an adult, can be absorbed in… This is a book that makes you happy.”  –  Lena Kåreland, Swedish Daily News (SvD)
