Here we go; here's another set of half-witted adventures and reminiscences from that most furry of all heroines, Tabitha Miggins. In this (eminently bushy) tail, she manages to change the course of... More > history thanks to a slight faux pas. It gets better, though, thanks to Tabitha going to have a chinwag with her future self, so as to find out how she saved the world from the radical, new history that she'd caused. As it turns out, saving the world involves passing Warp speed and knitting at Weft speed, even though this means Tabitha knitting herself out of history altogether. Some days a cat just has to do what a cat has to do; that's what duty's all about. If all this wasn't enough, Tabitha meets up again with the dastardly Smuckle and we find out how he managed to survive throwing himself in the sea whilst bound in heavy, iron chains back in the last book. We also get to find out how the decorating in his hideout on Lundy went.< Less
