A best-selling picture book showing an alien’s view of Earth Tiggers from this award-winning team.

"Good morning, class. Today we are going to learn about Earth Tiggers. Earth Tiggers are made of furry material. They are available in Patterned or Plain."

Dr Xargle is instructing his class of small fellow aliens on the nature and habits of the earth creatures known to us as cats. This allows a certain zany perspective on them that will strike a chord with anyone in close relationship with these furry individuals.


Humour in lavish abundance. A real treat.
