Weird and wonderful people live in The Lane, and it’s here they meet the Spell Master and Lady Prunella Pussington, a beautiful white cat with a scary secret.Eventually, Halloween returns once more. What will happen to Cat now? Will his mistress return for him, or will he have to stay with Annie and Sam forever? Read on to find out!

Having retired from my job in the NHS, I now spend busy days caring for my grandchildren, and writing at every opportunity. I am married to Alan, and have one son, three daughters and eleven grandchildren. Nothing makes me happier than spending time with them all, preferably all at once, although my house seems very small when we are all together!

    Children will never look at their gardens in the same way again after reading the adventures of Cat. If they notice the neighbour’s cat wandering around the rose bush, they’ll be wondering if it could really be a witch’s cat who’s fallen off the broomstick and could the rose bush actually be a doorway to a secret world?

    This book is a delightful story of Cat, a rather aloof feline creature who belongs to a witch but one Halloween falls off the broomstick into Annie and Sam’s back garden and knows he has to wait until next Halloween for his mistress to return and collect him.
    With touches of Alice in Wonderland and Narnia about it, the story tells of the adventures that take place when Cat leads the children through a rose bush in the garden to a secret world beyond. There they meet the Spell Master who hands the invisible spell to Sam and makes him disappear until the spell wears off.

    The next adventure takes them to meet Lady Prunella Pussington who changes from a beautiful ball of white fluff into a huge white tiger with mean green eyes and razor sharp teeth when the children refuse to eat her cold fish cakes, complete with tails!

    With colourful illustrations on most pages this is a book that children will love listening to as it’s read out loud to them, but with simple text and 8 short chapters, older children will enjoy reading it for themselves.

    And as the final sentence promises that Cat will be back (and a witch’s cat never breaks a promise) there’s a hint that there may be further adventures to come, leaving young adventurers hungry for more.
