Product Details

Praise

“A truly bewitching story reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland.” —New York Journal American

“The Carbonel books are excellent stories, imbued with wonder and practicality in equal measure, dry humor, and a clear-eyed and sometimes sardonic love of cats. They have a healthy interest in food and a ruthless interest in the logical working-out of the implications of magic…These books have moved me to laughter and tears.” —Pamela Dean

“Magic and everyday life blend smoothly in this highly enjoyable fantasy, perfect for reading aloud.” —Terri Schmitz, The Horn Book

“A delightful fantasy of real literary merit. When Rosemary acquired a black cat and an old broom, she thought she had a pet and a means of earning money for widowed mother. But Carbonel was magic, and at his behest she set out to acquire a witch’s hat, pot and spell to disenchant him. How she does this will enthrall children. A must for all libraries.” —Library Journal

“A delightfully amusing story.” —Parents Magazine
