KIRKUS REVIEW

Gargoyle, the Rector's cat, looks with cateristic curiosity at the kaleidoscopic events which occur when the Channel town in which he lives becomes a floating island. An itinerary, staggering in its extent, takes Gargoyle across the equator and to a remote corner of the South Seas. Adventure pursues its citizens, and bewilderment, as the town remains intact but is subjected to one after another alien climate and atmosphere. A zany story told with humor and conviction; a lively if unlikely lesson in geography.
