THE JOURNEY OF SOLOMON
Solomon is a large black cat with the greenest eyes you have ever seen. He lives in a second floor London apartment with his owners Rachel and Tom.
Unable to go out on his own he spends hours each day looking out from his sunny seat on the windowsill, dreaming of running through the grass in the park across the road. Desperate he plans an escape to realise his dreams. Little does he know that this is the start of a much bigger adventure involving trees, queens, trains and cats not to mention a fight for his life.
Barny, or Barnaby Maksimillian III to give him his full name, is cat royalty – a pure bred Russian Blue national champion. He lives a well-fed, quiet and pampered life with his family Lord & Lady Marchbanks and their children.
When he and their daughter Jemima are ‘Catnapped’ it soon becomes clear that Barny has to be brave and attempt a rescue mission. His quest is filled with danger, new faces, new places and many exciting adventures.
Follow his journey and find out whether Barny gets home in time to save Jemima.
