Kaspar, Prince of Cats
Prince Kaspar Kandinsky – Prince of Cats, Londoner, Muscovite and New Yorker – stars in this glittering tale from Michael Morpurgo. Kaspar the cat first came to the Savoy Hotel in a basket. Johnny Trott knows, because he was the one who carried him in. Johnny was a bell-boy, you see, and he carried all of Countess Kandinsky’s things to her room. But Johnny didn’t expect to end up with Kaspar on his hands forever. Nor did he count on making friends with Lizziebeth, a spirited American heiress. Pretty soon, events are set in motion that will launch them all into adventure. But will Kaspar and Jimmy the bell-boy survive theft, a rooftop rescue, a trip all around the world… and the sinking of the Titanic?
A magical adventure story packed with thrilling ingredients: bell-boys, dukes, American heiresses, Russian nobles, ocean liners – and cats!
