About the book

It’s Christmas Eve and all the staff in the department store are on their way home for Christmas. All except one . . . Clawdia, the department store’s security cat! She doesn’t see the point in silly festive celebrations and would much rather prowl the corridors making sure everything is in order. But when three cold and lonely visitors turn up at the store, they teach Clawdia a few key lessons about the true meaning of Christmas.
