In His Royal Whiskers, something bad has happened to Prince Alexander, the only heir to the mighty Petrossian Empire. Something worse than kidnapping. Something worse than murder. Somehow, the Prince has been miraculously transformed into a fluffy-wuffy kitten!
Why has this terrible cat astrophe happened? Who are the boy and girl brewing secret potions down in the palace kitchens? And how are they possibly going to avoid getting their heads chopped off by Alexander’s father, the fearsome Czar?
His Royal Whiskers is a magical tale from Carnegie Medal nominated Sam Gayton, illustrated throughout by Peter Cottrill. Sam is a graduate of the Writing for Young People MA at Bath Spa University. He loves American novels, Italian food and the English countryside. When he’s not writing, he likes playing old board games, strumming his guitar and joining as many rock bands as possible (currently at seven). Sam often visits schools and libraries across the country to talk about his magical books.
