Product Description

Prince Kaspar Kandinsky – Prince of Cats, Londoner, Muscovite and New Yorker – stars in this glittering tale from Michael Morpurgo. Kaspar the cat first came to the Savoy Hotel in a basket. Johnny Trott knows, because he was the one who carried him in. Johnny was a bell-boy, you see, and he carried all of Countess Kandinsky’s things to her room. But Johnny didn’t expect to end up with Kaspar on his hands forever. Nor did he count on making friends with Lizziebeth, a spirited American heiress. Pretty soon, events are set in motion that will launch them all into adventure. But will Kaspar and Jimmy the bell-boy survive theft, a rooftop rescue, a trip all around the world… and the sinking of the Titanic?

A magical adventure story packed with thrilling ingredients: bell-boys, dukes, American heiresses, Russian nobles, ocean liners – and cats!

“Michael Morpurgo has written many splendid novels about cats, and this tale, told by a bell-boy at the Savoy Hotel, is a gem.” Amanda Craig, The Times

“A beguiling story.” The Independent

    I absolutely loved this book. It was sad when Johnny was called a stowaway, so that wasn’t good. I am officially crazy about the Titanic, which is why I have read basically all the books about the Titanic. Especially this one. It’s so good. I think it should be a national requirement to read it. It is phenomenal.

    From how much i read of this book, I thought it was really good, but i didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought it would. Maybe it’s because its about animals, or maybe because it’s set in a different time period, but i was dissappointed with parts, and wouldn’t read it again.

    this book is reall good. when i read it i read it through my favorite TV show and thats almost impossible.

    and when i read it a couple of months later i could tell my dad in great detail what it was about. in the most description.

    it was just like saying ever line of every person was saying was coming alive in front of my eyes it was great.

    it was really interesting from start to finish. i love cats so it was just the book for me. kaspar is such an amazing cat, he survived the titanic and went to loads of places. there where a few sad bits but it all ended kind of sad and happy. it kind of ended in a confusing way but i know how it ended and thats what maters.i think Michael Morpurgo is a really good auther and i racomend this book to ages of 7 and over because it had a few hard words in it and it has 208 pages. even my friend bought it, after i bought it into school and read it.

    I think that this book is great. It is a book of mixed emotions. When bell boy travels with a girl and her parents on the Titanic disaster strikes and the boat begins to sink. Join the boy on his adventure with a cat witch is his responsibility. I would give this book 5 star, and recommend it to any Michael Morpurgo fan!!
