AbstractHistoryArchive Description

''We had several dogs on board the Spyall, but Trim was undisputed master of them all. When they were at play upon the deck, he would go in amongst them with his stately air; and giving a blow at the eyes of one, and a scratch on the nose to another, oblige them to stand out of his way.'

'Trim is renowned in Australian history as the feisty, fortunate ship's cat who accompanied Matthew Flinders on his voyages to map the coastline of Australia in the early 1800s. Trim was an intelligent, adventurous and loyal companion, who survived falling overboard, shipwreck and imprisonment by the French along with Flinders. This delightful and heartwarming picture book brings Trim's story to life for younger readers.'
