A gentle British fantasy originally published in 1955. A good hearted little girl's new pet turns out to be a former witch's cat, enslaved by a spell. Rosemary, her friend John, and the talking cat Carbonel rush around London gathering the items needed to break the spell. I enjoyed their adventures and the story earns 3 stars from me. Carbonel earns a fourth. His independent, sarcastic, yet affectionate personality is exactly right. ( )

This was a fun children’s book that is well written and stands the test of time pretty well. It was written back in the 1950’s. I loved Carbonel and the wonderful relationship Rosemary has with her mother, as well as the friendship she develops with John.

There’s a bit of a treasure hunt theme to this book and I enjoyed it a lot. There is some terminology in here that is a bit dated and I kind of had to use the surrounding context to figure out what some words meant. Still this was a great read and something I think kids and adults will both enjoy.

My 11 year old son started to read this and stopped because he thought it was boring; so this book would probably be better for younger kids or adults who enjoy charming kids stories.

Overall this was a wonderful story about a young girl and her magical cat and the summer she spends hunting treasure with him. I enjoyed the writing style and the story; it stands up to the test of time very nicely. I would recommend to younger kids (not middle grade age, but younger) and adults who enjoy charming children’s stories. ( )

I read this book when I was 11, found it in the Long-side Public library. It was an amazing adventure this one, not just because it starred a little girl and her cat, but because the adventures they had were crazy and fun. I have to read it once more. I always wanted to read the sequels, but never found them, now I'll have to look for the e-books. ( )

I was reminded of this book (and its 2 sequels) by a post on Twitter, and thought it would be fun to read it for the first time in about 30 years! It's a nice kids summer holiday adventure with cats and magic and broomsticks. ( )

Delightful book. It's a classic example of British children's fantasy. Rosemary and Lance aka John work to free a cat so that he may claim his throne that was stollen from him. So it has elements of high fantasy along with the Edith Nesbity children galavanting acround the city in persuit of adventure. ( )

Rosemary's satchel bounced cheerfully up and down on her back as she hopped on and off the pavement of Tottenham Grove.

By squeak of bat,

And brown owl's hoot,

By hellebore,

And mandrake root

Come swift, and silent

As the tomb,

Dark minion

Of the twiggy broom.
