MYSTERY, DISGUISES, AND A FIGHT FOR FREEDOM.

The second episode in the CAT ROYAL ADVENTURE series plunges readers into the underbelly of London in a mission for justice. Pedro’s old slave master wants him back, but his friends on Drury Lane won’t give him up without a fight. Disguised as a boy, Cat enters an aristocratic boarding school and scales the heights of London society before joining a street gang to probe its depths, all to secure the freedom of her friend. Like THE DIAMOND OF DRURY LANE, CAT AMONG THE PIGEONS features mysteries, theatrical spectacles, the evil Billy “Boil” Shepherd, and, of course, the irrepressible Cat, who never fails to stir up trouble and save the day wherever she goes. Coming in Spring 2009, Cat travels to Paris during the French Revolution in DEN OF THIEVES.

Praise for Cat Among the Pigeons

“Golding weaves a fine historic tale about the antislavery battle in England in the 1790s by way of an ensemble of colorful characters, death-defying adventures, witty dialogue and narration, and lively action.”—Booklist, Starred Review
 
“The London streets come alive, as do the horrors of the transatlantic slave trade. Despite the youth of its narrator, this thriller will captivate teens as old as fifteen or sixteen. Cat has a zest for life, unadulterated by her encounters with the worst of the age. Every setting and character in this story is richly imagined, and readers will look forward to the next adventure.”—VOYA

“Golding spins a tale that starts with a bang. . . . An adventurous ride full of mystery, suspense, and history along the way.”—School Library Journal

“The pace is quick and engaging and the colorful evocation of 1790s London will keep readers plunging on and awaiting the next installment.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Golding succeeds in doing what is best about historical fiction: putting her readers into the past so they are able to imagine how life was then.”—KLIATT
