This is the story of a cat, a broomstick, and quite an ordinary schoolgirl called Rosemary. She bought them both in the market, the broomstick for two and fivepence, and the cat for three farthings, which was all the money she had left. Of course, neither cat nor broomstick were just what they seemed, and they turned up just when Rosemary badly needed something nice to happen to her. A good cat is apt to be independent, so she did not have things all her own way, and as Carbonel proved to be a Royal cat in a very special sense, that was understandable. Between the cat and the broomstick, Rosemary picked up some nice useful spells and magics, and the adventures they brought about turned a dull-looking holiday into one long to be remembered for its unexpected excitements and rewards.
