The Alchemists Of Vra
In which the governments of the world are threatened by a fanatical cat with a disconcerting obsession with cushions.
“’I wish to see what this world has in its deepest darkest rooms!’ cried Vaasi-Vee, head feature writer for Collars Monthly, a very successful fashion magazine with particular emphasis on collars. ‘Its violence of spirit and its sordid games of greed! I wish to see mischief and treachery, sorcery and betrayal! I want to flail through oceans that have drowned and deserts that have seared, and flee from hideous foes before turning to fight with courage I never thought imaginable!’
Then she met Oscar. Which was fortunate, as he tends to do quite a bit of that sort of thing.”
When Oscar Teabag-Dooven stumbles across the arrogant bard named the Dodosette, and the beautiful cat Vaasi-Vee, he unearths a plot to plunge the world into darkness. After some begging, a lot of snow and an industrial-sized vat of soup, the three animals argue all the way to the infamous land of Vra to do something about it.
They did not, however, anticipate it involving fighting invisible Rottweilers, smashing kitchens to pieces, licking frozen cars, or funding taxi drivers’ sisters' eye operations. But then again, for Oscar Teabag-Dooven, such things are not unusual.
Except, perhaps, the bit about licking cars.
