Squishy McFluff, a lightly sketched cat and Ava are inseparable best friends and do everything together. No one can see Squishy except Ava – not surprising, as he only exists inside her head. A good humoured, fast paced story centering on Ava’s eccentric grandmother who has her hair tinted green and who is happy to include Squishy in all her activities.
