dozerDozer the Fire Cat by Robyn Prokop illus. Jenny Cooper. Pub. Scholastic 2020.

A fire has started. take only your most treasured possessions say the police and evacuate quickly.

Animals cannot understand that and Dozer the cat keeps doing the things he has always done. The humans call and call but Dozer is sleeping.

Then the fire arrives is put out by brave firemen but Dozer is alone surrounded by black. The ash sticks to his paws, he is frightened and scared.

This must have happened to thousands of animals during the Australian bush tires but this true story is based in New Zealand during the Nelson fires of February 2019.

Robyn Prokop’s written text brings out the drama of the fire, while Jenny Cooper as brilliant as ever, captures the fire and the fear of the pussy cat.
