The little guys win the day!
What a wonderful story showing that it isn't one's physical size but the size of one's love that matters.
Thaddeus Whiskers is enchanted to stay ever an adorable kitten and given to Princess Clarice as her royal companion on her eighth birthday. Thaddeus and Clarice are totally happy until Wizard Hermes messes up on his attempt to make Thaddeus more perfect for Clarice's 10th birthday and Thaddeus is sent away from the castle. Thus begins a series of adventures as Thaddeus attempts to make his way back to his beloved Clarice and finds some new friends along the way.
I absolutely love the interaction between so many of the different characters and how they help each other in this story and happening to know a little bit about the author, I am not surprised at all that a cat and a dragon are so prominently and wonderfully featured.
Delightful story for both young and old.
Children who love cats, dragons and/or princesses will surely enjoy this story but so will parents and grandparents who get to read it to them and even those who read the story without a child to listen along.
Did you have a favorite character or least favorite character?
Even though I am not a cat-lover Thaddeus was adorable; I really liked Grandious the Dragon and the interaction between Grandious and Thaddeus. Without giving too much away, I have to say that Snickersnout also surprised me.
What mood did this book leave you in?
Happy that all is restored
