Publisher Comments:

The third and final book in the Carbonel trilogy

“There are many kinds of magic...and once magic is in your blood it attracts more magic,” says the royal cat Carbonel at the start of Carbonel and Calidor. Sure enough, Carbonels human friends Rosemary and John soon encounter magic in the form of a ring set with a fiery red stone that grants wishes to whoever wears it. And its a lucky thing, too, because Carbonel needs Rosemary and Johns help. It seems that his son Calidor has rejected his princely status for the love of a streetwise cat named Wellingtonia (also known as Dumpsie). Even worse, Calidor has apprenticed himself to the witch-in-training Mrs. Dibdin. With all this going on, its just a matter of time before Carbonels old nemesis Grisana—accompanied by her slyboots daughter Melissa—hatches a plan to take control of Carbonels kingdom once and for all.

This third and final volume of the Carbonel series is as full of enchantment and adventure as its predecessors, Carbonel and The Kingdom of Carbonel. Read individually, or in sequence, Barbara Sleighs fantastic and fantastical trilogy casts an unforgettable spell.

Synopsis:

The third and final book in the Carbonel trilogy. Young Prince Calidor grows up a happy and obedient kitten, knowing that one day the enchanted kingdom of Cat Country will be his to rule. But his sheltered life is shaken up when he meets the feisty Dumpsie.
