By Helen Borton. Published by Happy Books Press.

Hardcover, 48 pages, Colour, 2021 (originally published 1962)

Helen Borten’ s Copycat tells the tale of Algernon Longwhisker the Third, a dissatisfied cat who tries to live up to his illustrious forebears by imitating every other animal on the farm, gaining the nickname “Copycat” in the process. After failing as a rooster, a sheep, a bird, a squirrel and finally a tree, Copycat discovers that to find his place in the world and be loved, he just has to be himself.

Originally published in 1962, Copycat returns to print for the first time in decades to delight a new generation of readers with its warm, vivid images that will capture children’s imaginations. Happy Books Press have painstakingly restored the original Pantone spot colours to produce a beautiful new edition that is as true to the original as possible.

“Exciting and valuable” The Times Literary Supplement

Copycat was printed by offset lithography at Tallinna Raamatutrükikoda in Estonia.
