Fat Cat to Hungerford by Chris Palmer and Jinny Peberday (with illustrations by Dru Marland) is a book that brings together a single year's diary entries that document life lived afloat on the Kennet and Avon Canal. Here is a book for all those who have ever pressed their noses up against a narrowboat window, observing the occupants within and asking themselves, "What are they doing in there?" Fat Cat to Hungerford will be treasured for its kindly humour, its gentle satire, and, not least, some hugely sensitive observations on the flora, fauna, and passing of seasons in a uniquely beautiful part of the British Isles – a candid book that introduces the reader to the gentle rebellion of canal boat living, while not shying away from the politics and logistical challenges that are often encountered by those who view 'the navigation' as their home.
