Carbonel and Calidor (Paperback)
by Barbara Sleigh, illustrated by Charles Front
This third and final volume of the Carbonel series is as full of enchantment and adventure as its predecessors, Carbonel and The Kingdom of Carbonel. Read individually, or in sequence, Barbara Sleigh’s fantastic and fantastical trilogy casts an unforgettable spell.
The Carbonel books are excellent stories, imbued with wonder and practicality in equal measure, dry humor, and a clear-eyed and sometimes sardonic love of cats. They have a healthy interest in food and a ruthless interest in the logical working-out of the implications of magic. . . . These books have moved me to laughter and tears.
