A charming and exciting 'tail' from the much loved author of Oliver the Cat Who Saved Christmas. Charlie the kitten is not looking forward to the summer holidays. With his humans planning on taking a long yet well-deserved break to the seaside, his agenda is to simply spend time with his good feline friend Oliver. Still, he can't complain; his youngest human Caroline desperately needs a vacation. Just having recovered from leukemia, she is feeling very down, and the arrival of a new baby only makes her feel even more left out. So it comes as a shock when Charlie finds out he'll be joining his family on their trip to Mudditon-on-Sea, and after a long and stuffy car journey (why humans travel this way, Charlie will never know) he gets settled into the cottage. He's not allowed outside, but being able to spend time with Caroline and cheer her up is well worth it. When a door is accidentally left open, confidant and mischievous little Charlie can't help but give in to the pull of adventure. But what he doesn't know is that he isn't the only runaway, and it's up to him to not only save himself, but save a life...

George Alfred Henty (8 December 1832 - 16 November 1902) was a prolific English novelist and war correspondent.He is best known for his historical adventure stories that were popular in the late 19th century. His works include The Dragon & The Raven (1886), For The Temple (1888), Under Drake's Flag (1883) and In Freedom's Cause (1885).G. A. Henty was born in Trumpington, near Cambridge. He was a sickly child who had to spend long periods in bed. During his frequent illnesses he became an avid reader and developed a wide range of interests which he carried into adulthood. He attended Westminster School, London, and later Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he was a keen sportsman. He left the university early without completing his degree to volunteer for the Army Hospital Commissariat when the Crimean War began. He was sent to the Crimea and while there he witnessed the appalling conditions under which the British soldier had to fight. His letters home were filled with vivid descriptions of what he saw. His father was impressed by his letters and sent them to The Morning Advertiser newspaper which printed them. This initial writing success was a factor in Henty's later decision to accept the offer to become a special correspondent, the early name for journalists now better known as war correspondents. Shortly before resigning from the army as a captain in 1859 he married Elizabeth Finucane. The couple had four children. Elizabeth died in 1865 after a long illness and shortly after her death Henty began writing articles for the Standard newspaper. In 1866 the newspaper sent him as their special correspondent to report on the Austro-Italian War where he met Giuseppe Garibaldi. He went on to cover the 1868 British punitive expedition to Abyssinia, the Franco-Prussian War, the Ashanti War, the Carlist Rebellion in Spain and the Turco-Serbian War.He also witnessed the opening of the Suez Canal and travelled to Palestine, Russia and India. Henty was a strong supporter of the British Empire all his life; according to literary critic Kathryn Castle: "Henty...exemplified the ethos of the new imperialism, and glorified in its successes." Henty's ideas about politics were influenced by writers such as Sir Charles Dilke and Thomas Carlyle.Henty once related in an interview how his storytelling skills grew out of tales told after dinner to his children. He wrote his first children's book, Out on the Pampas in 1868, naming the book's main characters after his children. The book was published by Griffith and Farran in November 1870 with a title page date of 1871. While most of the 122 books he wrote were for children, he also wrote adult novels, non-fiction such as The March to Magdala and Those Other Animals, short stories for the likes of The Boy's Own Paper and edited the Union Jack, a weekly boy's magazine. His children's novels typically revolved around a boy or young man living in troubled times. These ranged from the Punic War to more recent conflicts such as the Napoleonic Wars or the American Civil War. Henty's heroes - which occasionally included young ladies - are uniformly intelligent, courageous, honest and resourceful with plenty of 'pluck' yet are also modest.These virtues have made Henty's novels popular today among many Christians and homeschoolers.Henty usually researched his novels by ordering several books on the subject he was writing on from libraries, and consulting them before beginning writing.Some of his books were written about events (such as the Crimean War) that he witnessed himself.....
