Maw by Richard llwyd edwards, front cover detail
This week the first book in a new series of picture and story books for infants following the antics of a ginger cat from the slate town of Upper Corris in North Wales will be launched. Y Lolfa publishers of the book hope that the Maw the cat will eventually become the most famous cat in Wales.The book has been written and drawn by Richard Llwyd Edwards and describing his new creation he said,

“Maw enjoys climbing, saying his name, playing, eating and sleeping and sleeping and sleeping… He supports Celtic and his favourite colours are green and white and ginger like his hair of course.”

Meinir Edwards on behalf of Y Lolfa added,

“I’m sure Maw will strike a chord with children. It is impossible not to like him. I’m hoping that before long he will be as well know as Garfiled, Felix and Tom from Tom and Jerry. Although the book is published in Welsh, an English translation of the text is printed on every page so that non Welsh speaking parents can read and understand the book while reading it to their children.”

Richard Llwyd Edwards is the head of Art at Penglais school in Aberystwyth. He lives in Upper Corris with his six cats. Maw! is available in Welsh bookshops and www.ylolfa.com for £2.95.
