The Glass Cat

The adventures of Clint, a small boy, with his magic glass cat.

Clint lives in a village where, many years ago, four boys disappeared.

Clint becomes a target for the Faeries who carried them off but his Aunt is a witch and a member of a group who are fighting the Faeries. She gives Clint the Glass Cat as a Christmas present. Clint hates the present until he discovers the cat comes to life to protect him.
