Famous Cat Merlin with Witch

”New York is a magic city where almost anything can happen – especially if you live on the 13th floor of an apartment house on Central Park West. Now of course, since most people are superstitious there is no real 13th floor in hotels or apartment houses, and the one where Ronnie and Gillian live, although it is right above the 12th, is called the 14th. It is not until the day they find the black cat Merlin that they discover the magical 13th floor where the hall paper is a pattern of bats, owls and broomsticks, with borders made of old charms and incantations. “

The Thirteenth Is Magic, Joan Howard, illustrations by Adrienne Adams, 1950
