We received a fun book recently! The Case of the Jewel Covered Cat Statues, which is book 3 in Cindy Vincent's series of cat detective books for kids. I gave the book to Eli to read first. Eli is 13, and here's what he had to say about it:
I thought this book was pretty cool. My favorite character was Bogey. I was surprised by him having cat treats stashed everywhere.
I think the best part was when someone tried to break in and the cats turned on the lights and started flinging pots and pans onto the floor to make enough racket to scare away the burglar. There was one part where I got bored with the story, and that's when they were sitting under the guard's chair at the museum.
Spoiler alert: The bad guy is Abe Abascal, the other antique store owner. Don't be fooled by his kindness!
I found it amusing that when I picked up this book, my cat came and curled up on my lap.
Another passage I appreciated was when young Buckley goes to see Miss Mokie, the elderly "Yoda" of the cat clan. The take-away he learned from her is that sometimes humans think that stuff is more important than people, even their friends. I liked how positive morals were woven into the story without being "in your face" about it.
Eli said he would read more books from this series, which is a pretty good endorsement from him. You can see all of Cindy Vincent's books on Amazon.
