0.99 2.99

'Good Afternoon! It's a foggy and cold afternoon here in Coventry, the heart of England, and this is the news at the top of the hour from our news cat Mog Mittens...' That's how Tommy the Learned Cat starts his afternoon show on BBC Radio. Lots of important topics in the feline world are discussed on Tommy's show, from the latest news in politics (the Feline Society is debating the response to the Canine Society which accused the cats of being responsible for the extinction of 33 different species), to the world of science (did you know that scientists proved recently that every single domesticated cat can be traced back to one of the five African wild cats?), to the world of sports (Nanahuli, the one-Eyed Rescue Cat in Hawaii, became the first feline surfer recorded in the history of feline-kind). And while listeners are enjoying the lovely miaow mixing of music featuring titles that clawed their way to the top 10 in the chars, Tommy tells his young readers about the history of the radio and the British Broadcasting Company (or BBC for short). 

BBC began gathering families around bulky old radio sets in 1922, back in the day when television and internet were still non-existing terms. From Children's Hour, the first children's programme aired on BBC radio, to CBeebies, the modern day's show, Tommy tells how children were always an important part of BBC's audience. And for those readers interested in technology, Tommy offers a tour around the studio. 

Join Tommy, our Radio Cat, in his BBC radio studio, to celebrate 95 years since BBC's first broadcast on 14th of November 1922. This book is a special gift to BBC Coventry and Warwickshire (94.8, 103.7 and 104 MHz FM) on BBC's 95th birthday.

Julie G Fox, Author and Founder of Clever Fox Press Ltd.

When I came up with the idea for my first book 'Goodbye, Emma' which tells a story of a child refugee forced to leave his dog behind, I decided to start my own charitable publishing venture that would raise funds and awareness for children refugees around the world. And so, Clever Fox Press was born, a company dedicated to all children refugees. We work with charities assisting children refugees in England, Canada, Germany, Greece, Iraq, Ukraine and Turkey. Through a unique collaboration with artists and toy makers around the world, we’ve created more than 20 children’s books since January 2016, and more books are on the way. We treat children how they want to be treated – as intelligent human beings who can comprehend and explore the many social and scientific issues our stories touch on.
