Sourpuss is a very grumpy, ginger cat. When shut out of the house he feels lost and
confused, but the beautiful garden soon intrigues him.

Watch Sourpuss on his journey of discovery and enjoy learning the secrets of the
great outdoors. From buzzing bees to a chirpy robin, stinky rubbish and vibrant
flowers this visual show is a feast for little eyes.

This playful adventure features hand-crafted string and shadow puppets.
