      'Well, don't let them see you. Really, Rosemary, you have no ingenuity.'A number of rather angry replies came into Rosemary's mind at this, but she remembered Napoleon and Charles the Second and swallowed the retorts that came to her lips.The king of the cats was stolen from his great inheritance by a vain and greedy witch. Enslaved to her petty treacheries great and small until he is freed at long last by the fulfillment of a prophecy. I loved the simplicity of their magic. The foretold three q [...]

      Although I gave this a 4 at the time it should probably be lower, as I just read the sequel without remembering this book or the characters in the least.

      This was a favorite book from my childhood, and it's still excellent 40 years later. I just ordered it for my own daughter, who just loves cats. (We have three.) Even though she's 15, she still loved reading Carbonel: The King of Cats. I'm so pleased that it's back in print! Some children's books are so good that you don't have to be young to enjoy them. This is one.

    4. Cheryl on said:

      Dated, simple adventure fantasy. No real wisdom, resonance, or poignancy or humor, for that matter. Everything kinda just falls into place: the children always have just enough pocket change, they never bicker, Carbonel is meant to be leader by right of Birth (which, you know, grates on my American sensibilities just too much), the rich lady is kind, the mother is patient, etc. Ok fine. Let's move along to Nesbit or Eager or Farjeon, all right?

    5. Nick on said:

      From the 1930s to the 1960s, roughly speaking, there was a golden era of children's literature. Many of the authors were British - E. Nesbit, Arthur Ransome, C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Mervyn Peake, and so many more -- and some were American (Madeleine L'engle). Barbara Sleigh belongs to this era, and her Carbonel series is a wonderful trilogy of books about the King of the Cats and his adventures with some British children who through various magical means can understand his language. "Carb [...]

      Long before Harry Potter, the Carbonel series captured that same British magical whimsy. Carbonel and its sequel were among my favorite books at the library when I was about 9-12. Imagine my delight when this book, originally published in 1955, was re-released followed by two sequels! I didn't even know it was a trilogy. I completed my set, and now I'm reading through them from the beginning.[return][return]Young Rosemary plans on cleaning houses to make her summer break pass by. However, when s [...]

      This was a raving good time. I loved all of the characters, and it is consistently funny, well-written, and action packed. I love the way she phrases things, and I also love the way she writes dialog. Every character has a unique voice, and most have a funny way of saying things. I'm so glad this is only the first in a series of 3 novels, because I want to read more about Carbonel, Rosemarie and John.I realize I can't read all the NYRB Classics, so I've a mind to read all the NYRB Children's boo [...]

    8. Michael Fitzgerald on said:

      Very nice ordinary magic story, but it seemed a little too long. There was the curious idea of not describing things by saying, "I'm not going to describe this food - just think of the most wonderful meal you can imagine." Quite the opposite of Elizabeth Goudge in The Little White Horse: Collector's Edition where everything gets described in mouthwatering detail.

    9. Melody on said:

      I loved this book and am happy to hear it's back in print. My current cat goes by the sobriquet "Huckle, King of All the Cats" and I knew it came from a book, but couldn't remember here it is. :-)***Re-read 05/2009Carbonel is just as crochety and (shhhh) adorable as I remembered him being. What a wonderful story for cat people everywhere.

    10. Amy on said:

      B age 10: I liked it pretty well but I wish the broom could have lived because it was my favorite character. I want to read the other books in the series.I thought the book was written at a nice pace and featured a good balanced between fantasy and reality. I would have liked it better if Carbonel was a more likable character - but he was really aloof at best and sometimes pretty mean.

    11. Amy on said:

      Sunday afternoons reading children's books at my mums house are just proper lovely. Today I chose Carbonel about the Prince of Cats and his adventures with Rosemary and John to free him from a binding Silent Magic spell so he can reclaim his throne. I'm miserable at the moment but this charming little story put a smile on my face this sunny Autumn day.

    12. Rachael on said:

      I remember loving the Carbonel books as a kid, so I was excited to get this to read with my 7 year old, but it wasn't quite as engaging as I remembered and was a little too slow and old-fashioned to interest my son it took us nearly a year to get through!

      Such a fun, cute story. And of course I'm a sucker for a talking cat.Review originally posted on Reading Autistically. Still in the mood for some classic children's fantasy adventure goodness, I picked this one up. This is the story of Rosemary, a young girl who decides to help out her financially struggling mother by secretly offering her services as a cleaner during her summer holidays. Having bought a broom at the market from a strange old woman, who threw in a beautiful black cat in the barg [...]

      First published in 1955, it is the story of Rosemary, who lives with her widowed mother in a boarding house. They don't have much money, and Rosemary's mother supplements her pension by taking in sewing. During the summer holidays, while her mother is sewing at the house of the wealthy Mrs Pendlebury Parker, Rosemary decides to set herself up as a cleaner to help out financially. Because she knows she won't be able to take one out of the house, she buys a broom from an untidy looking woman in a [...]

      Я люблю книжки про котиков. Они могут делать в них что угодно (разговаривать, враждовать с другими кланами, детективничать, быть серийными убийцами), я все равно буду упорно про них читать. А эта вот не пошла вообще, и я пытаюсь разобраться почему. Люблю иллюстрации, и подолгу [...]

      Another book from the 'discard' pile - but one which has now gone straight back onto my shelves. I never read it as a child but I wish I had - this is a magical book in every sense of the word. I actually shed a tear right at the end (always the sign of a good read) but mostly the book is gently humorous, as we share the unexpected adventures of Rosemary and John, two ordinary children who find themselves doing extraordinary things. Sometimes things go wrong, sometimes they go right, and Rosemar [...]

      I read this book when I was 11, found it in the Long-side public library, Manchester, UK. It was an amazing adventure this one, not just because it starred a little girl and her cat, but because the adventures they had were crazy and fun. I have to read it once more. I always wanted to read the sequels, but never found them, now I'll have to look for the e-books.Update on 4th read: 25/08/2017Wow! Finally bought my own copy from amazon thanks to a bookpage in Bangladesh. I am holding this after n [...]

      Carbonel, a witch's cat with the airs of a prince, is saved from a life of servitude by a young girl. The girl, Rosemary, continues to perform more favors for the cat when she enlists the help of John and the two of them endeavor to free Carbonel from his bonds once and for all.This is a pleasant and old-fashioned book that I quite enjoyed. The young heroes encounter very few problems in the story, but the nostalgic charm is what really makes the book worth reading. I'm not sure any kids today ( [...]

      Part of my "belated British childhood." ;)This book was a lark. It reminded me a little of Bedknobs and Broomsticks, a sentimental favorite. (I had such a crush on that boy!)

    20. Fefi on said:

      Ho preso questo librino per caso al supermercato e, leggendolo, mi sono resa conto che è una favola per bambini carina e molto scorrevole.Carbonel è un principe dei gatti intrappolato a far da servitore ad una strega, la quale, un bel giorno, lo vende ad una bambina, Rosemary, che è abbastanza povera e vive sola con la mamma,che fa la sarta alle persone ricche. Il perchè lo acquisti proprio lei è legato ad un'antica profezia felina; il micio è un gatto parlante che si capisce solo se si im [...]

      Rosie needs a broom and goes to an open air market to find one. It's late and most shops have closed. All she can find is an old twig broom. Then she gives three Queen Victoria coins for a big black cat.The broom is a witch's broom. Carbonel is a witch's cat and under a silent magic spell. Rosie is his way to undo the spell so he can reclaim his father's throne as Kind of the Cats.Along the way Rosie and Carbonel team up with John. They seek the hat and cauldron. Along the way they meet many int [...]

      This is a nearly perfect read-aloud for younger children in a family setting - that is, one-on-one or in small groups of mixed ages, when the listeners are ages 4 to 8 years old. A humble, hardworking, polite, kind girl makes all the right decisions and gets a lovely adventure attempting to break the spell that is binding a talking cat - with the use of a flying broom, and a magic kettle & hat. She gets help from a sweet but clearly secondary boy, and both of them use ingenuity, good instinc [...]

    23. Helen on said:

      A delightful and very British children's chapter book about a girl and her magic cat. Not weighed down with a lot of morality, the children are allowed to be children, getting cross with one another, subjected to bullies, and playing games in between their adventures to return the cat to his rightful throne. The peril is just enough to keep young readers interested, and some words and phrases American parents and children alike will need to look up, but that's half the fun!

    24. Curt Bobbitt on said:

      The characters in this children's storybook all have and act according to conscience. Rosemary, the primary character, behaves generously despite her poverty. She works tirelessly to release the magical cat Carbonel from a spell that enslaves him to her. The fantasy elements of talking animals and magic add an extra dimension.

    25. J. Harden on said:

      One of my favorite books as a child. Charming story of a girl, a boy, a cat and magic.

    26. Millie on said:

      I loved the book and I would definitely recommend from 8 year olds to about twelve or thirteen years it will be amazing

      I’ve never read Carbonel even though I’ve had this book for ten years. I just really liked the book cover, my version is the Puffin one with the Bruce Hogarth cover illustration, and never got around to going past the first page.The story follows young Rosemary when she buy a witch’s broom and talking cat. The cat, Carbonel, is prince of the cat kingdom and he was spirited away as a kitten and placed under a spell which binds him to whoever owns him. He cannot return to his kingdom until t [...]
