Description: "'Richard and Thomas Kitten lived with Master and looked after the house for him.' Well, yes; that's certainly how the book begins, but very often in practice the programme, as they say, appears to be subject to alteration. These five adventures of Richard, Thomas and Master are full of funny and unexpected turns. Robin Jacques's delightful pictures are every bit as amusing as the stories themselves, and readers will return time and again to this charming book by a master storyteller."
Superbly illustrated throughout with b&w engravings – many of which are full-page.
