No one needs a wizard and his old bag of tricks—until the day he meets a black cat with a spiffy hat and a lonely heart. Together they share a magical night in Toronto’s Casa Loma castle, enjoying a candlelight feast of tuna and wine and the company of new friends. Originally published in Lee’s 1974 collection, Nicholas Knock and Other People, The Cat and the Wizard enjoyed a second life as a much-praised picture book and is now available from HarperCollins.

Editorial Reviews

?The rhymes and rhythms are lively, varied and confident, as we?d expect from Canada?s most celebrated children?s poet . . . Lee?s artful nonsense bubbles along, lightly bearing its theme?loneliness assuaged by finding a friend, and the pleasure of having a companion who enjoys the same kinds of fun that you do. The collaboration between Lee and Johnson is as successful as that between wizard and cat.? ? QUILL AND QUIRE (Starred review) ()
