Milly and Tilly are googly-eyed cats who belong to a cheeky little baby called Penny. During the day, they sit on her mat playing games and acting like normal toys. During the night when Penny is asleep, they creep out the back door in search of fun and adventure, ransacking bins, scrapping with other cats and generally causing mischief. At the end of the night, they sneak back inside and wipe their paws clean so Penny doesn’t know that they’ve been out all night. However, one day in winter, heavy snows falls. The cats decide to be brave and sneak out. But the snow is too deep for their little paws and they get stuck. What will they do? How will they escape?

Henrietta Mackenzie is a new author. Inspired by reading to her daughter, Penny, and creating stories about her two googly-eyed toy cats, she wrote her first picture book to bring her stories to life. At one-week-old, Penny developed a potentially dangerous condition on her face and around her airwaves, called segmental haemangioma. This is an overgrowth of blood vessels that form a red mark and swelling. After two weeks of doctor’s appointments, she was eventually diagnosed and is being treated by Great Ormond Street Hospital.

In gratitude for Penny’s diagnosis and treatment, Henrietta proposes to donate half of any earnings she makes from the book to Great Ormond Street Hospital.

    A charming story that little people find very easy to relate to. Who isn't going to love two rascally cats who constantly get into scrapes? This was particularly popular with my children, who especially enjoyed the sense of peril at the end of the kittens' escapades - I'm sure they identified strongly. Whether it will deter them from similar misadventures remains to be seen.
