Kat Wolfe Investigates is a cleverly written mystery for middle schoolers that moves at a fast pace and keeps you glued to your seat as you race to an answer.
From The Cover
After a break-in at their London home, Kat Wolfe and her veterinarian mum decide it’s time to move to the country. Dr. Wolfe’s new job on England’s Jurassic Coast comes with a condition: They have to adopt Tiny, …… Kat starts a pet-sitting agency to make pocket money, but then the owner of her first client, an Amazon parrot, vanishes from his gadget-filled mansion. Only one person shares Kat’s conviction that he’s the victim of foul play: Harper Lamb, an American laid up with two broken legs thanks to her racehorse. Kat and Harper team up, but what starts out as mystery-solving fun turns deadly for the duo. When all clues point to a nearby army base, can they count on their unruly animal friends to save the day – and their lives?
What you Get
A well-written chapter book full of intrigue and mystery, the love of animals, and new found friendship! Tiny is an interesting cat (you will just HAVE to meet him). Fast paced action, good characters, along with animals that just might surprise you. Entrepreneurship and family that cares deeply for each other, it was so good to see.
The town that Kat and her mom move to gives them a warm welcome that carries through into daily activities. One mystery leads into another and before you know it, it all comes together in the end.
I enjoyed this book. So many details that Lauren St John pulled together. It was fun,and very quick paced. I did have to stop and go back a time or two when I felt like I missed something. Kat and Harper are interesting girls. Well written characters with interesting twists that made them quite real.
