Mister Mishkins’ Apothecary is the first book in the Magical Mister Mishkins Series, written by Samantha Mattocks.
“Everyone should read this book!” Adi Pal, age 8
“It was honestly one of the best children’s stories I’ve ever read, so heart warming and it made me think I wish I had it when I was little.”
Mister Mishkins is a magical cat, who runs an Apothecary on Mosaic Street – a place that mysteriously appears in town overnight and is only visible to those in need. Whenever anyone enters the Apothecary, Mister Mishkins listens as they share their troubles and fears, before turning to the rows of wooden drawers where, hidden within, is an eclectic mix of cats. These cats take whoever needs them on a journey of transformation, replacing negative emotions with hope, optimism, and a small sprinkling of magic.
This book was released on 3 October 2023 in two formats: a limited edition hardback, hand signed and numbered by both Samantha and Mister Mishkins, with just 100 copies available; and a standard paperback.
