The feline overlord King Mog has set his loyal subject Tom an impossible task.

Luckily, today is the day Tom’s owner insists on joining him.

After shrinking to the size of a mouse, the brave and resourceful Melanie is granted a cat’s-eye view of a fascinating hidden realm.

As they race through gardens, across rooftops and down hidden pathways, a familiar neighbourhood becomes the epic setting of danger and adventure, kindness and cruelty, courage and camaraderie.

Can Mel help Tom beat the King's favourite, Sir Ronald, and gain the approval of the Court?

Mini Mel and Timid Tom is a laugh-out-loud, sprawling adventure. A graphic novel that lets children witness the challenges of competition, and asks what it really means to be the bigger person. (Also it’s really cute and full of cats.)

Arrived really quickly and the book is just gorgeous!! It's awesome to see a kid in a story act like a kid. So much fun.

Laughed more than I should have... I must have a sick sense of humour, that thankfully perfectly matches this zine.
