Black cats born at midnight
Are different indeed
A mischievous, odd
And peculiar breed
A bewitching new series from the best-selling author of A PINCH OF MAGIC, Michelle Harrison. Told in rhyming verse and illustrated in colour throughout by Elissa Elwick. This is perfect for readers of SQUISHY MCFLUFF, HUBBLE BUBBLE and GOBBOLINO.
In the middle of winter, three kittens are born in a barn. Two are ordinary, but the third, jet black and born on the stroke of midnight, is brimming with magic from whiskers to tail – even sparking life into a dusty old broomstick! While her siblings pounce at rats, Midnight perfects her flying skills on the broom, not noticing how her mother disapproves of her magical ways…
When Midnight finds herself abandoned, the little black kitten sets out to find a new home with only her loyal broom Twiggy at her side. The pair soon befriend a kind-hearted girl called Trixie. But how will Trixie’s family react to Midnight’s extraordinary powers and taste for mischief?
Stunning new series of early chapter books from Little Tiger Press, beautifully bound and on top quality paper, with full illustrations on every page. A great way to encourage new readers into books.
