Behind every door there is a story, and The Cat and Custard brings us to the story of a broken heart. Anna, a young Roma girl whose ruined family and secret sin have destroyed her friendships finds herself left out and all alone.
Looking in the mirror and into the all-seeing eyes of her friend Shandor the cat, Anna sees a picture of herself that she doesn't like very much and she wonders if the others see it too.
The Cat and Custard is a beautifully illustrated 'story within a story' that will open the doors of children’s hearts as they learn about God’s love, forgiveness, and telling the truth. You will want to read it over and over again.
