‘A star-filled story of courage, belonging and the particular magic of feline friends. A treasure of a tale, beautifully told.’ – A.F. Steadman, NYT-bestselling author of the Skandar series

From the Costa Award-winning author Hilary McKay, comes the story of a young girl looking for magic in the world, and the feline family who help her to find it. A gorgeous, hardback gifty package, highly illustrated by the wonderful Keith Robinson.

Rosa lives in a world where she discovers there is magic. It arrives with Balthazar, a large black cat, just when she needs it most. Even so, it takes all her courage to stay hopeful and adventurous when her dreadful aunt and uncle move into her life.

And when she finds herself abandoned in the ancient city of Venice, can magic help her then? Perhaps it can.

The stars are watching, and there are lots of cats in Venice…
