Archie is a young artist on holiday in Cornwall. He has an adventure that starts with a decision to follow an unexplored path on Bodmin Moor. Before long he comes across a sad and lonely King, whose only companion is a fiercely protective knight. His kingdom has fallen into ruin under the spell of an old Witch. Archie promises to help lift the spell and restore the kingdom to its former prosperity by passing three tests set by the Witch. Archie, helped by the Prime Pisky of Cornwall, encounters Davey Jones, a fearsome two-headed giant and some flying salamanders in his quest.  The tests—ones that are quite appropriate for an artist like Archie—plunge him  to the depths of the ocean and take him soaring to the Sun.  There is, of course, an enchanted cat, who is central to the whole story.
The Enchanted Cat written and illustrated by Vincent Bennett
