To Price Evans, who has just moved into the quaint old house that was his grandmother's childhood home, Sinbad looks much like any ordinary, long-haired ginger cat-the pampered and sole companion of Mr. Murphy, the cantankerous old man living next door. Little does anyone know that Sinbad lives in our world only when he isn't busy (stirring up rebellion) in his real home: the magical Land of Tolk. There are signs though, that everything is not as it seems-like the two incredibly life-like wooden dwarfs that appeared, seemingly out of nowhere, in the small space between the Evans' property and Mr. Murphy's garage. When Price stumbles upon the gateway between these two very different worlds, he learns the truth about Sinbad and his nefarious plot to bring the conveniences of human technology (and pampering) to the peaceful and immortal inhabitants of Tolk, heedless of the impact of such potentially corrupting influences. Price finds himself in the midst of a civil uprising, with the fate of Tolk hanging in the balance. What role will he play in exposing Sinbad as a liar and a fraud? Can the peace-loving Tolks expel the rebel forces before they destroy their way of life and their very world? Even though he is an outsider, it is clear to Price that whatever happens next will determine the fate of the Land of Tolk and all of its inhabitants....

About the Author
Over the years, Lesley Renton has enjoyed working with hundreds of youth, from school age to young adult, and believes strongly in their innate desire and ability to make good choices and succeed in life."My aim is to create stories that are both captivating and empowering," she says. "In "Cat Between Two Worlds" there are no magical solutions to problems. The main character resolves conflict using his wit and ingenuity. At the same time, he must rely on the contributions of all, right down to the smallest person. "As a mother, reading with my two children was part of the family adventure. Even into their teens, we were exploring together many wonderful books. These were warm, comfortable times, close to the heart. It's my hope that this story will inspire in its readers that same sense of wonder, adventure, and inclusion." Lesley and her husband, Bruce, live in Calgary Alberta, where she teaches private piano lessons at a performing arts school. Watch for more books by Lesley Renton―coming soon....
