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.

Orlando and Grace decide it would be good for the kittens to be have a pet, so they place an ad in the newspaper. A startling menagerie of animals applies for the job, but in the end, they adopt Bill, a boisterous poodle, simply because he refuses to leave! When Bill moves in, bringing Flute the cat with him, life is never quite the same again.

About Author

Kathleen Hale was born in Broughton, Salford, Lancashire and was brought up in a suburb of Manchester. Her childhood was far from idyllic: her father died when she was very young and she was forced to endure long periods of separation from her mother. This, along with the frustrations of an unexpressed artistic talent, produced a rebellious reaction in the young girl's naturally ebullient nature.

Kathleen Hale was born in Broughton, Salford, Lancashire and was brought up in a suburb of Manchester. Her childhood was far from idyllic: her father died when she was very young and she was forced to endure long periods of separation from her mother. This, along with the frustrations of an unexpressed artistic talent, produced a rebellious reaction in the young girl's naturally ebullient nature.

However, her talent as an artist was recognised at school by a sympathetic headmistress at Manchester High School for Girls and she went on to attend art courses in Manchester and at the University College, Reading. Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name. In 1917, Kathleen moved to London to make a life for herself as an artist.

She worked for some time as Augustus John's secretary whilst developing a wide circle of friends in the artistic community, such as Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. During the 1920s she earned a living as an illustrator, accepting commissions for book jackets as well as selling her own drawings. She married Douglas McClean, a young doctor working in medical research.

They settled in Hertfordshire where they could bring up their two young sons and entertain their friends. She created Orlando and his world to entertain her children at bedtime. Orlando The Marmalade Cat 'with eyes like twin gooseberrie's was one of the classic children's book characters of the 1940s and 1950s.

The stories are known for their quirky wit and extravagant illustrations. They combine adventure with friendship and family life. As the creator of Orlando, Kathleen was awarded the OBE in 1976.

Kathleen Hale died on 26 January 2000 at 101 years of age.
