The very special Quaky Cat book created in the aftermath of the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes in Canterbury, New Zealand, is now available as an interactive digital KIWA BOOK™. Quaky Cat is an uplifting, evocative tale about a cat, Tiger, who disappeared just before the earthquake struck, and Emma’s search to find him. It is a story that will capture the hearts of children and adults alike, brought to life with stunning, bold illustrations.

Through downloading the Quaky Cat App, you will be supporting Canterbury in its recovery after the devastating earthquakes, with all of the author and illustrator royalties plus a contribution from the publisher being donated to Christchurch charities.
