When Kathleen Hale's Orlando first made his debut in 1938, it was to instant acclaim. The adventures of the splendid marmalade cat, his wife Grace, and their three kittens grew into a series of books that have become classics of children's literature. The sophisticated, utterly gorgeous illustrations combine with warmly funny stories that celebrate the pleasures of family and friendship. Now reissued in oversized jacketed editions that faithfully reproduce the elegant folio format of the originals, these are books that will continue to be passed down from generation to generation.
This, one of the most popular Orlando books, recounts Orlando's surprise visit to France as he finds himself accidentally on board a ferry bound for the Continent. In typically exuberant style, Orlando soon makes the most of his unexpected European holiday. Based on Kathleen Hale's memories of her own first trip abroad in the 1920s, it recaptures perfectly the ambience of a lost age.
