Ms Williams said: “The book features a group of animals who try to help a Tasmanian Devil suffering from the disease.

It was illustrated by a student from Birmingham Art College who has managed to retain the caricature and humour I wanted to portray about the animals’ plight.

“The story also conveys a vitally important message which I hope will appeal to families and children. I’m trying to raise money to help the people who are treating the stricken Tasmanian Devils and who have introduced a new breeding programme,”Pat said.

During her visit, Cat toured Maria Island with her rucksack to see the places of refuge which have been created to help protect the species.

“The book is really a fable but does try to get the message over at the end. It costs £10 and every penny will go to Devil Facial Tumour Research Disease.

“I managed to sell a number of copies to two bookshops in Hobart, Tasmania, and I hope to get Waterstones to stock a few copies as well,” Cat said.
