The Cat And The Wizard

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Feb 19, 2013 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 32 pages

No one needs a wizard and his old bag of tricks—until the day he meets a black cat with a spiffy hat and a lonely heart. Together they share a magical night in Toronto’s Casa Loma castle, enjoying a candlelight feast of tuna and wine and the company of new friends. Originally published in Lee’s 1974 collection, Nicholas Knock and Other People, The Cat and the Wizard enjoyed a second life as a much-praised picture book and is now available from HarperCollins.
