Dancing Paws of Magic

Welcome to my website…

My newest book, Dancing Paws of Magic is available from April 2017 which is being published by Matador. My previous work, Introducing the Pusska Moggyinsky Ballet Company is also available, please navigate to My Books page for further information.

So what is Dancing Paws of Magic about?

“This children’s book is a delight! How can I get front row tickets?”
– Francesca Watson, The Cat

Inspired by the books of Pamela Brown, Noel Streatfield and Gladys Malvern, the second book in Maria McArdle’s Pusska Moggyinsky Ballet Company series tells of a friendship between animals that would otherwise be enemies and their fears and determination to preserve their magical way of life.

Dancing Paws of Magic contains a number of Maria’s own beautiful illustrations and will be enjoyed by children aged 9-11 years with a love of dancing, theatre and cats, as well as fans of her first book, Introducing the Pusska Moggyinsky Ballet Company.
