Flame is prince and heir to the Lion throne but he is not yet strong enough to stand up to the evil uncle who killed his parents and is trying to claim Flame's throne for his own. Flame must hide in the human world as a kitten but can't stay in any place for too long for fear of his uncle finding him. So Flame travels from family to family in various kitten guises using his, often chaotic, magic spells to help those who need it along the way.

Sadie is so excited to be attending the local circus youth group, especially since she seems to have a real talent for all the acrobatics! Sadie's best friend Jenny, isn't quite as good as Sadie and becomes jealous and cold towards her. Sadie really doesn't know what to do until she finds a lonely coal black kitten...
