Detailed plot synopsis reviews of To Visit The Queen

Rhiow a house cat, along with a Tom Alley cat, and a just trained kitten wizard. It all starts innocently enough, a young human student carrying a very large book. Looking forward to selling off this brick of printed paper, he takes the trains from Grand Central station and then somehow to his horror, ends up in of all places, Victorian England. In shock, and confusion he drops his book and runs off. Only to find himself back in New York City, with a bizarre tale, and no book. So it seems a strange and unfortunately glitch in the Wizard gate overlapping a normal human use gate. Or is it?
