It's always fun to find good books for your kids to enjoy! Mysteries by Vincent not only have great mystery games for adults and children, but they also have some good books as well!
Cindy Vincent has a knack for coming up with fun mysterious situations with both her games and books. I was lucky enough to preview her newest middle-grade novel--The Case of the Cat Show Princess, a Buckley and Bogey Cat Detective Caper. Even though the book is meant for a younger audience, I actually really enjoyed the book. It was funny, cute, and an enjoyable read.
Here the great book description on the website which summarizes it well: "Cat detectives Buckley and Bogey have barely advertised their new detective agency on the Internet when they receive a secretive email from a cat who claims she is in danger. Of course, the cat doesn't give any details, like who she is or what kind of danger she's in. Instead she mysteriously signs her name as P.A. and says she'll be at the St. Gertrude Cat Show on the weekend. To investigate, Buckley and Bogey soon find themselves at that very cat show. And, as part of their cover, Buckley enters the Cutest Family Pet Competition and Bogey enters the Agility Competition. Before they know it, they come nose-to-nose with a real, live Princess. One who even wears a diamond collar! That's when the boys uncover a case they can dig their claws in to, especially when they find evidence of a cat burglar stealing jewelry from the pet parents. But the boys really get their fur ruffled when they discover that P.A. is definitely in danger, and before long, so are they . . . Holy Catnip!"
The book's length is perfect at only 163 pages and I can see children--especially animal and cat lovers really liking the book! I don't want to give too much away about the book, but I can tell you that there are some very creative twists and turns and a lot of fun incidents that occur. Luckily curiosity did not kill these cats, but kept them Buckley and Bogey doing what they do best--solving mysteries!
