The Garden with the Greys
 Theofano Kaloyanni

54pp.
Hestia, 2004
ISBN: 960-05-1160-8

Plans to make way for a new building threaten to destroy a lush, almost tropical garden that surrounds a block of flats. But the apartment owners have not reckoned with the opposition of a band of grey cats that patrol the garden. There’s gentle humour at the expense of human foibles here as the residents squabble over how to deal with the overgrown garden: cleaning it is too much work, clearing it proves too expensive for the stingy owners, and the idea of turning it into a parking lot provokes squabbles when everyone wants to take everybody else’s place. When the unnamed narrator who finds he can hear the cats speak unwittingly teaches them to wish away the rain, drought blights the whole country. But the heroic cat Esmeralda works her magic. The author’s atmospheric illustrations add to the charm of this tale.
