"This is the story of a shy boy, nearly 10 years old and his constant companion, a Russian Blue cat named Tolly. His Grandpa is head gardener of a nearby estate and an expert topiarist.
Grandpa creates a huge topiary of Tolly, so realistic Richard talks to it as though it is alive. Weird happenings ensue: statues come alive, a lake turns to gold and a new constellation appears in the night sky.
Discover how The Topiary Cat becomes a living being with extraordinary but a lack of understanding of mortal humans. This story is a message of hope driven by empathy, a love of nature and concern for the care of our precious world."
