His Royal Whiskers
One dark night, the mathmagician Pieter was captured by the palace’s Spice Monkey, Teresa, to help her try to overthrow the evil king. Teresa was friends with young Prince Alexander, who, despite his father’s many attempts to make him a bloodthirsty tyrant, was still just a normal six-year-old child. So this night, Pieter agreed to help Teresa create a potion that turned anything it touched into a cat. Unfortunately, after they made it, they were playing with Alexander when they were attacked by the king’s evil WarMaster. When Teresa threw the cat potion at the WarMaster, she missed, instead splashing the potion all over poor Alexander, who was transformed into a kitten. Now they must escape the czar’s wrath. Will they find a way to turn Alexander back as well? You will be surprised at what happens!
The first half of this book is interesting, but then it gets super weird. Things happen that are very unusual and not at all what you would expect – but I don’t want to give away the ending! I recommend it for kids who want something different and aren’t afraid to be surprised. It’s a good story that keeps you interested until the end.
