Young Peter Black has a bad reputation in town for telling wild stories. Father Allen has given him work as a sexton, but this may be his very last chance at a job. So, what is Peter to do when he happens upon a cat coronation in the church in the dead of night? How can he convince Father Allen that this isn’t just one more wild story? And why is Father Allen’s cat staring at him like that? Explore the mystery in this much expanded and highly imaginative retelling of an old English favorite.
