#118: CatKid: I'm No Fraidy Cat - Brian James

CatKid is one of a kind! She knows her house is haunted, so why can't anyone else hear the scritching and scratching in the attic? Is it just her super-sensitive feline ears that pick up the spooky noises? To prove to everyone that she's not just a fraidy cat, CatKid hatches a plan. But will her scheme catch the ghosts, or land her in the doghouse?

Author Bio:

This is BRIAN JAMES's first early chapter-book series. He lives in Woodstock, New York, with his wife and their cat, Doggie.


My Opinion:
This was an adorable and quick read. The illustrations are what I find adorable and they are throughout the whole book.
I really enjoyed the lessons being taught, learning to listen to your instincts, loving yourself and acceptance. All valuable things for the readers of this age.
A really fun whondunit with a laughable twist!
Kids in Grades 2-3 will enjoy this the most I think.


5/5


Recommend? Yes to middle grade students.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
