Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Kathleen Hale's Orlando first made his debut in 1938, it was to instant acclaim. The adventures of the splendid marmalade cat, his wife Grace, and their three kittens grew into a series of books that have become classics of children's literature. The sophisticated, utterly gorgeous illustrations combine with warmly funny stories that celebrate the pleasures of family and friendship. Now reissued in oversized jacketed editions that faithfully reproduce the elegant folio format of the originals, these are books that will continue to be passed down from generation to generation.

Orlando takes his family on a holiday visit to the town of Owlbarrow-on-Sea where they swim, sunbathe, fly kites, discover a "mermaid", and even help to rescue some shipwrecked travelers. A book that delightfully evokes the magic and nostalgia of childhood visits to the seaside.

Synopsis:

This facsimile edition of the original edition portrays Orlando and his family at the seaside. The author also wrote "Orlando the Marmalade Cat Buys a Farm" and "Orlando's Home Life".

Synopsis:

Orlando and the family go off to the seaside where they stay in an old beached ship which is the home of lots of different animals - from Vulcan the horse to a fat dachshund called Daisy, who doubles as a sofa for Grace. They also find time to help rescue the shipwrecked crew of a sailing ship. This Orlando book, as usual, is full of verbal and visual humour; the illustrations are full of detail and demonstate Kathleen Hale's unique skill at gently caricaturing without being grotesque.
