I am Cat Royal - Orphan, Adventurer, Actress ...Meet the feistiest heroine in children's historical fiction.

I have travelled halfway across the world and back chasing mystery and adventure.

Back on home soil I have barely laid eyes on Drury Lane before my world is turned upside down and I am forced to leave once again.

As an orphan I never had the chance to meet my mother, but when news of my lost family reaches me from Scotland I must head north for the border.

My friends in London have always been beside me, but this is one task I must face alone!

Exciting, funny and packed with adventure ...Cat Royal never fails to stir up trouble wherever she goes.

Review by

I whole-heartedly enjoy this story, and the adventures and misadventures that Cat Royal gets herself into. This one takes her into Scotland, seeking her heritage and not only has her working a run-of-the-mill job, but also includes cattle theives, tresspassing and general mayhem. Another fast-paced, interesting adventure with a good touch of humour and a very appealing narrator.
