But we wanted to get in a post today and finally lay to rest our 250th post -- that's right, this is post Two Fifty!! We've been trying to think of a good way to celebrate ever since we realized we'd be hitting that number right after The Mommy returned from vacation, and finally decided that a book review would be the purrrrrfect thing.
A book review, you ask? Why yes, yes indeed. A very nice bean by the name of Chris Dolley contacted The Kitty Krew and asked us if we'd like to read and review his [we think Chris is a he...apologies if we're wrong!] new book, The International Kittens of Mystery. Well, heck yeah! We love kittens of course, and with this blurb, we were hooked:
In an uncertain world there is one organisation that stands head and small furry shoulders above the rest. Whenever the planet is in danger – be it from giant balls of wool or bands of renegade squirrels – only one group is guaranteed to answer the call.
The International Kittens of Mystery!
This is a journal of their stories. For the first time, cameras have been allowed into one of their top secret training camps – Training Camp Alpha. A camp where, under the supervision of pet humans, recruits are shown not only how to save the world but also how to manage their secret identities – how to blend in and infiltrate the human society that they alone can protect.
If you like a laugh and looking at cute pictures of kittens saving the planet, this is the book for you.
IKM is a quick (30 minutes or so) but really fun read, with thrilling stories of kittens undergoing their training as well as using that training in real-life, dangerous situations. We were on the edge of our seats as The Mommy read it to us, and looking at the photos! Oh My Cat! Those IKM kittehs are masters of disguises....and so darn cute. (That must be part of their disguise!) This is a must-read book for kittens and cats of all ages...woofies too!
This ebook will work best on the computer or a color ebook reader because of the photos, but The Mommy read it to us using her 1st generation Kindle, which only shows black-and-white photos, and the photos showed up good enough on it to be able to enjoy them in that format, so don't let that stop you.
Twelve paws up from The Kitty Krew!
IKM is available at Book View Cafe in several ebook formats, including PDF for those without a specific ebook reader.
We hope to get around to see you all soon, and to post more than we have lately, but just know that we may be scarce for a few more weeks!
