Profile Picture

"The Outlaw Varjak Paw" - a clunky, rather unwieldy title - nevertheless fittingly describes the adventurous action novel by SF Said. Like a classic western except with cats, the novel follows Varjak Paw, a new cat in an area long starving under the control of the white cat Sally Bones and her deadly gang. With his friends Holly and Tam, and even with the help of a great big dog named Cludge, Varjak learns to accept his place as leader of a new gang that will bring liberty from oppression to the Free Cats of the city.
