Nat has written a series of picture books about The Mighty Claws - a gang of young dinosaurs who live in Mighty Claw Valley and try to make it through every day without getting mauled, scared, squashed or traumatised.

“Full-pelt sketch comedy from performers who radiate enjoyment and ease with a crowd. Makes The Fast Show look languid.” Brian Logan, The Guardian.
This is Margot Von Catton. Nat adores her but it is not reciprocated.
There's a lot of rejection in comedy but cat ownership is worse.
