A thrilling and romantic fantasy adventure about a magical family, a kingdom under threat and one very unusual cat from one of the most original and exciting writers for children and young adults.
Princess Wisdom, known as Dizzy, longs for a life of adventure beyond the staid old kingdom of Montagne.
Tips, a soldier, longs to keep his true identity a secret.
Fortitude, an orphaned maid, longs only for Tips.
These three souls might possibly attain their dreams while preserving their empire from ruin if only they can bear one another's company long enough to come up with a plan.
Magic, cunning, and one very special cat join forces in this hilarious tale told in diaries, letters, encyclopedia entries, and even a play, all seamlessly stitched together by Catherine Gilbert Murdock, author of the highly acclaimed novel Princess Ben.
