About the book

Eccentric and charming, Mutzig the Clown Cat is the first ever book by Peter Wells. In 1981 he made 30 copies of this book by hand to celebrate a stray cat that wandered into his life and took over his heart.

A small art book, tactile and inviting, with drawings by the author.

About the author

Peter Wells has been writing award-winning fiction, non-fiction and films, which he also directs, since 1991, and was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to literature and film. His first ever book, though, was Mutzig the Clown Cat in 1981. ‘A small book seems fairy-like,’ he says. ‘Or like something hidden at the bottom of a tree in a magic forest.’ He lives with his cats and husband in Napier and Auckland.
