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 amazon.com:

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.
