Currently Reading- Franny and Toby: The Mystery of the Kidnapped Cat, by Tetman Callis

I recently decided to read and review a children’s book, probably because I miss my childhood sometimes. I chose Franny and Toby. Since I love cats, the cover appealed to me. More importantly, the book blurb sounded fascinating.

This is the book BLURB, in its entirety, from

Franny and TobyA Watership Down for the 21st Century – with cats! 

Inventive, magical and exciting, Franny & Toby is that rare story that gently teaches us that friendship and tolerance make our world a better place – and that a little education goes a long way when life becomes an adventure.

Meet Franny – she is one of the rarest of cats, for she is a cat who can read. She and her high-voiced brother, Toby, are the new cats on the block. When their human “owner” finally lets them outside they start making friends with other animals from the neighborhood: the cats next door, Highlanders Rainbow, Bay, and their TV-addicted brother Moo-Cow (who never comes outside); the cats across the street, Elbee and her three “kits”, Larry, Curly, and Moe (who are from the Southlands and arrived the year before as refugees from the Southie Wars); Bunny the Free Range Rabbit; MacAdam the roadrunner; and an amazing crowd of sky swimmers – the garrulous crow Squawky Shortbill, some enterprising pigeons, and one very serious falcon – The Colonel.

Beautifully crafted by a master storyteller, it’s exactly the sort of book every child should read – and one that kids of every age will love.
