The Kingdom of Carbonel Summary

The Kingdom of Carbonel by Barbara Sleigh

'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) colourful and the mingling of magic and reality is most effective' New York Times

A perfect blend of magic and everyday life, this delightful sequel to Carbonel has delighted children for generations.

Rosemary and John are proud to be entrusted with Carbonel's royal kittens while he is away from his kingdom, but it is a task that leads them into all sorts of unexpected and exciting magical adventures.
