Book Summary

Buckley and Bogey, Cat Detectives, find their next case hits a little too close to home. Because someone has been breaking into houses and stealing all the Christmas presents! And the first two robberies even took place in their very own neighborhood. Holy Catnip! Of course, the boys leap in on all fours to investigate right away. Then it isn’t long before they realize they are dealing with some real criminal masterminds, since these burglars know exactly how to cover their tracks. Plus, the crooks have the whole town of St. Gertrude on edge and they’re threatening to ruin Christmas for everyone.

But figuring out the identity of the Christmas Crooks isn’t the only mystery around. After all, Buckley had just been adopted from the cat shelter this year, and this was the first he’d ever heard about Christmas. And he quickly finds out there is a lot to learn! From Christmas trees to Santa Claus, and jingle bells to the birth of baby Jesus, the real meaning of Christmas is a mystery to him. But he and Bogey can’t really enjoy any of it until the Christmas Crooks are caught. That’s because it becomes very clear, very quick — these Christmas Crooks have set their sights on the boys’ house, too! And the burglars are headed straight for their door. Holy Mackerel

Book Review by Bree Herron

One can’t help but love a story that begins in the cat’s point of view. I fell in love with these kitties and their crafty ways. Giving me the thought of Mrs. Murphy by Rita Mae Brown the adult animal mystery series, this cat mystery is great for children or adults looking for a light mystery. I applaud the author for giving us mystery lovers a cat solving crime, that keeps the tree shakin’ through the winter nights. I can’t wait to read further of Buckley and Bogey the detectives that have stolen the children mystery scene.
