Zira finally gets her own pet earthling, Rolo.
But when he runs from the earthling catchers
and learns about the fabled planet Earth,
he wants to be more than just a pet.
“What a fantastically engaging story!
I love the premise and fun plot expertly
woven with heartfelt, meaningful moments.
The brilliant humor had me laughing
throughout, and the delightful characters
come alive in an authentic way.”

Rolo discovers the lost planet Earth
is now ruled by cats. With no family
or friends, he runs away with the
flying circus to find his people.
