Blong the Cat's

Costume Caper

Duckling Publishing

Available in paperback

Blong goes shopping to buy a special outfit to wear to a wedding, but not everyone likes his choices!

A story of costumes, numbers and dancing, all wrapped up in a bow of kindness.

Blong the cat is based on the real-life cat, who lives with Karen and her husband. The real-life Blong was adopted from Vanautu, and now lives in Auckland. Just like the fictional cat, Blong loves cuddles and music.

Suitable for children 3+.



'The story is great and it doubles as a counting book. Count the shoes at the bottom of each outfit. I thought it was funny and a good read-a-loud for juniors. The illustrations are fitting especially the eyes.' bobsbooksnz

'Blong the Cat’s Costume Caper has the cutest illustrations, but it’s also a heart-warming story that has lovely messages about being kind and considerate to others. And I love that it has all these different dances and costumes - and also a counting element too!' NZ Booklovers
