'Mooncat' A picture eBook for young children, written and illustrated by Kay, published on Kindle April 2014... Mooncat is wild at heart. She revels in nature; running with the wind and chasing leaves, playing in meadows and basking in the sun. Eventually, however, the seasons change and as a chill creeps into the air, Mooncat’s friends seek their burrows and nests and soon she is left all alone. On a clear, freezing night she cries to the moon, wishing for help, which arrives in the form of Mr Fox who knows his neighbourhood well enough to make two wishes come true.
