Christmas is almost here, and there is one tradition both cats and Felidix are particularly looking forward to: sitting together in the festively decorated school tower and listening to stories from the Magical Pages. As soon as they ring out, they fill every heart with their unique magic. But all 24 sheets have disappeared!

About the Series

Nova and Henry are Felidix, cat guardians. They attend the academy of old teacher Horatio in one of the towers at the Tower of London where they learn everything about the cat language and embark on many thrilling adventures with the royal felines and street cats of London. The thrilling stories are complemented by charming cat illustrations.

The Author

Barbara Laban is one of the very few people who know where to find the School of the Felidix in the Tower of London. The author read Japanese and Chinese Studies, worked in Munich, Taipei and Amsterdam and has been living in London with her husband and two daughters for more than ten years.

The Illustrator

When Jérôme Pélissier was a graduate student at the École Estienne school of arts in Paris, he received regular visits from cats, as cats consider it a great honour to get drawn by him. These days, the illustrator and his family live in Brittany in one of France’s most beautiful villages.
