Cat Detective

I used to be the world's greatest cat burglar but since I moved in with the Cheddar family at Number 2 Blossom Crescent, Littleton-on-Sea I've become the world's greatest cat detective. I've had loads of adventures and rescued Inspector Cheddar from villains more times than I can count on one paw. And whenever one adventure finishes there always seems to be another one just around the corner. Have you read them all??

"Another great adventure of Atticus Claw! I know, it is supposed to be for kids aged 7-10, but I love it, and it makes me feel good. I laugh when reading Atticus'adventures, and the drawings are nice. It is good to be able to feel as a youngster by time, no shame at all, you should try! And I love this quotation "It's a very sensible solution if you ask me. The best way to secure the future is to preserve the past" Don't you believe adults should meditate on this?"


"Atticus Claw was once a great cat burglar. He found a family which loved him although he was a stray and he became a police cat. The Cheddars (Atticus’s family) think that Atticus is a good detective as he has solved lots of mysteries (described in other books about Atticus Claw) to become the world’s greatest cat detective. When the Cheddars visit their cousin in Biggnaherry for Hogmany (New Year’s celebrations in Scotland) Atticus finds himself investigating a strange creature frightening people on the misty moor. He needs to solve the mystery or people will become poor and an evil lady will be rich. The clocks are ticking and time is running out. Can Atticus save Biggnaherry from the mythical creature called the Cat Sith? Atticus Claw on the Misty Moor by Jennifer Gray I like the great descriptions the author (Jennifer Grey) uses in this book. This book is very funny and full of happy and puzzling moments."
