"Richard Surman travelled the length and breadth of Britain and Ireland in pursuit of another group of privil eged creatures, the 'Castle Cats'. At Penhow in South Wales, he was greeted at the drawbridge by Sophie and Runcie. Sumo, the great wrestling cat of Hever Castle, treated him to a neck lock. Rockingham's Brandy tried to escape through a s e c r e t t u nnel, whilst at Dunrobin in the north-east of Scotland, George haunts his own stone turret. William and Harriet at the Tower of London have worked out novel ways of enjoying the ravens without risk. Crathes Castle cats observe eac h ov er w ar il y t hr ough arrow slits. Buzzards are a hazard for the dainty Ellie at Dunvegan, on the Isle of Skye. Ripley is graced by Blackie, a dreadlocked feudal retainer who fiercely defends his castle demesne. As usual, feline misdemean ou rs abo und : B ran dy hi des in the pantry eating roast pheasant; Sumo's habit of leaping onto shoulders (especially in the dark) has scared the life out of his owner; at Dunrobin, the Hamlet-like George wanders disconsolately along the seashor e. Fr om a rist ocra t to wa rder , th e 'Castle Cats' fulful their duties in a typically unpredictable and hilarious way." Dust jacket has crease at top edge of rear panel, minor rubbing.
