This is a story about a kitten called Carbonel (a royal kitten, future king to all cats), who was stolen from his cradle by a witch. The kitten grew up with the witch. When the witch decided to retire, she sold the kitten to a girl called Rosemary Brown. She not only buys kitten but also a broom from the witch without knowing that it was enchanted. She later found out that by holding the broom she could actually talk to Carbonel.
She with her friend John decided to free the bonding between the witch and the cat. Carbonel was bound by two spells.The first spell was broken by merely buying the cat from the witch.The second spell was made by SILENT magic. It required two objects namely a witch’s hat and a witch’s cauldron. Rosemary and John arranged these two items and managed to break the second spell.
The cat is now free!!
However that’s only the half battle won! Now Carbonel has to take back his kingdom of cats. Will he be able to conquest over Ginger Cat who has taken over the kingdom? Or will the Ginger Cat rule forever?
It is a must read. It is a mix of fantasy and reality. I love this book and this one of my most favourite books. Certainly in my top ten list.( will share my favourites in the next blog). Barbara Sleigh has written this book in such an extensive detail that you can’t help but enjoy it. I recommend this book for ages 7+. I hope you enjoy it as much as i did!
