Emma’s sister is missing.

Her parents have spent all their money trying to find her and the family has moved to a trailer park for Crags – magical creatures that live on the edge of human society – next to the dark forest. Here Emma meets a smooth-talking cat named Jack who has a plan to rescue her sister. He shows her how to shape-shift, to develop claws and cat senses. But cat magic isn’t easy, and Emma soon learns her sister is in the thrall of the faeries, the most beautiful and dangerous creatures of all.

Published May 2012.

Crag Fact of the Day:

‘The word “crag” was first used as slang to refer to trolls because of their gray, rocky looking skin. Today, it’s popularly used to refer to any magical creature such as dwarves, ratters, hags and cats.’

"We tried to do a lot with CLAWS, but if we had to pick one favourite, it's probably that we created a world where magic and monsters are a part of everyday life. It can be scary, and funny, and messy, and we hope that makes the magic that much more real."
