His Royal Whiskers – A Review

As a school librarian, I like to read YA and children’s fiction from time to time. I had not heard of Sam Gayton prior to winning my copy of His Royal Whiskers in a Goodreads giveaway, but I will now seek out his other books for our shelves.

This is a sweet tale for youngers readers aged seven and up. Ultimately it is a fairy tale but the CATastrophe is not really the main story of the book. That is the relationship between Pieter and Teresa, two children working for the fearsome Tsar.

This is children’s fiction at its most legitimate: An involved story with strong characters and enough humour to keep a child’s interest. No gratuitous gross-outs, just very good story-telling.
