A cat must go see his princess in her castle, and must confront the world and its pitfalls in order to get there. Who is this princess? Many discussions to be had: who explains precisely?

The cat recounts, we are enchanted, captivated by the at once playful and serious narration. We get caught up and don’t see the fall coming. Difficult not to be moved by so much emotion…

Themes: cats, stories, hospital, illness

The Author:

When she was little, Louison Nielman always filled her notebooks with poems, then small stories. Simultaneously, she devoured books. Reading and writing have always been natural to her, a need, and are like two essential gusts of air in her life.

She currently works as a clinical psychologist in health services welcoming children, adoloscents and their families. Her plume is animated by the desire to make them dream, to awaken them and to accompany them in their investigations and their insatiable curiosity.
