This is a long-awaited reissue of the much-loved sequel to "Carbonel, King of the Cats". In this second story, published over forty years ago, Carbonel has been summoned to appear before the Great Cat but before he goes he has to find someone to look after his two royal kittens. And so he tracks down his young friends Rosemary and John to help out. The kittens are very sweet - but quite a handful as the children soon discover...

About the Author:

Barbara Sleigh was born in 1906 in Warwickshire. She took an art teacher's training course, and later began to write stories for children for radio. She was a lecturer at Goldsmiths' Teacher Training College, then in 1933 joined the staff of BBC Children's Hour. Three years later she married David Davis, who later became Head of Children's Hour. Her first children's book, Carbonel, which was to become the first of a trilogy, was published in 1955 and has remained a firm favourite with younger readers.

Review:

"A delightful story for those who like impossible things to happen in a humdrum world...The children are lively, the grown-ups (including the witch) colorful and the mingling of magic and reality is most effective." –The New York Times

“The Carbonel books are excellent, imbued with wonder, dry humor, and practicality in equal measure, as well as a clear-eyed and sometimes sardonic love of cats... The moment when Cat Country first made itself known in The Kingdom of Carbonel gave me a flash of wonder, of entering into a larger world. Books that do this are to be cherished.” --Pamela Dean, author of The Secret Country

"The magic is potent in The Kingdom of Carbonel...As told in Barbara Sleigh's graceful, humorous manner it seems only right and natural that those two English children, Rosemary and John, should again meet Mrs. Cantrip, that retired witch who still can't resist dabbling in mischief and that hey should champion their old friend the black cat whose kingdom is threatened and whose wife and kittens are in grave danger. The children have some very worthwhile experiences including trips in an airborne rocking chair (very bumpy), an accident with an invisibility spell and the challenge of Mrs. Cantrip's Minuscule Magic powder." –The New York Times
