- Full Description
Lillian spends her days exploring the Tanglewood Forest, a magical, rolling wilderness that she imagines to be full of fairies. The trouble is, Lillian has never seen a wisp of magic--until the day the she's bitten by a deadly snake, and the magical cats must reveal themselves to her to save her life, by transforming her into a kitten. Now Lillian must set out on a perilous adventure that will lead her through untamed lands of fabled creatures--from Old Mother Possum to the fearsome Bear People--to find a way to make things right, to return to human form.
Or will she slowly forget her origins and be content to be a feral cat in a wonderfully magical forest, but also a place of danger for the unprepared?An expanded novel based on the the award-winning, previously published "Circle of Cats," now long out of print. One of our very favorite de Lint stories, with wonderful new color illustrations by Charles Vess.
In this whimsical, original folktale written and illustrated by two celebrated masters of modern fantasy, a young girl's journey becomes an enchanting coming-of-age story about magic, friendship, and the courage to shape one's own destiny. Perfect for all ages, from pre-teens to any adult who still loves a novel of "magical realism," the term for this modern fairy tale that takes place in our world--kind of. A perfect gift.
Note: Now available is the companion/sequel (both can be read totally independently). Seven Wild Sisters, which we also handle, is about Lilian, now a reclusive aunt to seven young girls, and how she must use the experience she gained in this book to try and free six of the sisters, with the help of young Sarah Jane, from evil forces in the very same forest.
