When he moves to a new town, Binx the cat finds it hard to make friends. The other cats call him unlucky and say that black cats are cursed. But his new friend Gin proves that Binx is the luckiest cat around.
Binx the Jinx is a story about celebrating difference and the power of friendship. Change can be scary, especially for a little black cat, but with a friend by his side, he learns that he can overcome anything – even bullies!
Inspired by the classics but unmistakably modern, Binx the Jinx is a story of friendship and triumph presented in a fresh, new way that children will love. Written and illustrated by Michelle Hird, Binx the Jinx’s vibrant style complements its vintage storytelling perfectly. Its message of love and respect for others is a necessary lesson for children learning and growing in an ever-changing world.
