Malaisea is the unhealthiest town in the whole of Zamonia, home to Echo the Crat, a multi-talented creature that resembles a cat but is capable of speaking any language under the sun. When his mistress dies and Echo finds himself starving on the street, he is compelled to sign a contract with Ghoolion the Alchemaster, Malaisea's evil alchemist-in-chief. This fateful document gives Ghoolion the right to kill Echo at the next full moon and render him down for his fat, with which he hopes to brew an immortality potion. However, Ghoolion has not reckoned for Echo's talent for survival, and his ability to make new friends.

Charming fun fantasy novel. Technically not a juvenile/YA book but I think older children and young adults would enjoy this. Whimsical and silly stand alone fantasy novel set in Zamonia where the author has set a series of other novels. I really liked this.
