Marilyn thanks you all for the orders that are pouring in for her third book, The Cats on Hutton Roof, but reminds you that although you are very kindly paying the money now, the books simply don't physically exist until early September, so she begs you to be patient.

As a sneak preview she tells us that the illustrations by Peter Warner are the very best yet and soon we will have one or two to put up in the illustrations page.
