An illustrated novel about a clutter of cats surviving in the rough streets of medieval Helmond.

About 500 years ago in the castle of Helmond, a city in the south of the Netherlands, a fire starts.
Herman’s whiskers are smoldering and his paws are covered in ash. He doesn’t recall how he escaped, but he wants to get back as quickly as he can, until he meets 6 other cats.

Find out why the people of Helmond are called ‘Kattenmeppers’ to this day in the adult-only book by Tahné Kleijn, beautifully illustrated and designed by Misha Hegeman.
