9780141359793: Carbonel (A Puffin Book)

Carbonel is a magical fantasy story by Barbara Sleigh.

This is the story of a cat, a broomstick and an ordinary schoolgirl called Rosemary. She bought them both in the market, quite cheaply. Of course, neither the cat nor the broomstick were just what they seemed, and they turned up just when Rosemary badly needed something nice to happen to her. A good cat is apt to be independent, so she did not have things all her own way, and as Carbonel proved to be a Royal cat in a very special sense, that was understandable. Between the cat and the broomstick, Rosemary picked up some useful spells and magic, and the adventures they brought about turned a dull-looking holiday into one long to be remembered for its unexpected excitements and rewards.

Carbonel is reissued in the 'A Puffin Book' series of Puffin children's modern classics.

Product Description:

Carbonel

Review:

"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 "The children are lively, the grown-ups (including the witch) colorful and the mingling of magic and reality is most effective. -New York Times "A delightfully amusing story." -Parents Magazine "It's a highly diverting fantasy, told exactly as though it all could happen." -Chicago Tribune "We do like good fantasy, and it is hard to find. Here is some magic sturdily rooted in everyday happenings with both the real children and their enchanted acquaintances well characterized and sharing in some very convincing experiences." -New York Herald Tribune "A truly bewitching story reminiscent of "Alice in Wonderland,"" -New York Journal American "A highly entertaining fantasy." -San Francisco Chronicle "Magic and everyday life blend smoothly in this highly enjoyable fantasy, perfect for reading aloud." -Terri Schmitz, Horn Book
