Another adventure story from Inca the extraordinary Siberian kitty-cat. It is Christmas time, and Inca is ready to enjoy the holiday season with her Siamese sister Cara and brother Fromage – the cheese loving Tabby cat, not to forget their adopted hamster Charlotte. Life turns interesting when their neighbourhood tough dog – Boss comes around asking for help to save the loss of his master and domicile. Another mystery to solve with the help of their neighbours Monk the Blue Russian cat and Polo the Pekinese doggy. An eventful time is around the corner for the newly formed detective team headed by Inca.

…We had seen Boss walk by in the safety of our home, but none of us relished the thought of meeting him one-on-one.
‘I met him in the park this morning’, said Polo. ‘He actually came up to me and asked me how I was and whispered that he very much wished to meet Monk and the group who solved the mystery of the lost diamond necklace of my Señora.
This book sees Christmas approaching. Inca – a Siberian cat and her family are looking forward to their planned Christmas festivity. Knowing Inca and her way of thinking, you can guess that some mystery needs to be solved as well.
With Christmas Cats, R.F. Kristi has created another beautiful story of cats, their human Missy, further animals, and a mystery. It is a highly enjoyable read, you are drawn very close to Inca – if you are willing to let it happen. R.F. Kristi’s love for animals shows. She carefully elaborates the four-legged characters; the two-legged characters are of sufficient depth as well. Inca – charming sleuth and confessing Dr. House fan – guides the reader through the story, making it a feel-good read. The story comprises likeable characters, two little mysteries, and it has a really good flow. It is the second book in a series and – as I also enjoyed the first one, I am looking forward to reading the next one.
This is a book for you if you like steady-paced, funny, and heart-warming stories for children, lovely illustrations, if you love animals, and if you like interesting four-legged characters.
