Fitz and Will The Cambridge Cats: The May Ball Adventure
Author: Laura Robson Brown (New Hall 1990), devised by Katherine Mann (Trinity 1990)
Publisher: Little Cam Books
The first in a series, The May Ball Adventure, sees two mischievous moggies, Fancy-foot Fitz and Whisker-twitch Will who live at The Fitzwilliam Museum. Fancy-foot Fitz is obsessed with beautiful accessories, particularly footwear. Her favourite boots are pink, stamped with stars. Fitz lives with her best friend Will by the huge lion statues at the Fitzwilliam Museum. She loves to watch all the visitors (and their shoes) and adores exploring Cambridge with Will. Whisker-Twitch Will loves gourmet food, and he manages to find plenty of it in Cambridge. When he isn't loitering outside college kitchens his favourite haunt is Fitzbillies, where he gazes longingly at the wonderful cakes in the window. Together they seem incapable of staying out of mischief!
Join Fitz and Will on their adventure as they gate-crash the famous Trinity College May Ball. The delicate illustrations bring back happy memories to share with the young children in your family. The cats are pictured in the historic streets and colleges of Cambridge scampering through cloisters, climbing the Trinity fountain, escaping on a punt, and finally ending up back at their home.
