(by Goodreads)

Can one cat detective bring peace and harmony to a family divided within the Korean peninsula?

Inca the Siberian Kitty and her globetrotting furry family are off to South Korea with their human Mom. Mom has just created a fabulous new cheese and she has been invited by the famous French cookery school, Cordon Bleu Cookery to not only present her new cheese but also be the judge of a cookery competition between South and North Korean chefs.

Along with plenty of sightseeing and delicious cheese, the cats befriend a Korean dog and his master pining for his long-lost sister living in the North. What dangers await the group of animal detectives as they cross over from South to North Korea.

I could see why Fromage was suspicious of him. Even though he was talking in a friendly manner to Mom, he couldn’t get the nasty gleam from his face.

We kitties are pretty smart when it comes to reading humanoids. We can smell a bad egg from a distance.

Enzo was a stinky egg, for sure. No doubt about that!!!

My Opinion

This book sends Inca – a Siberian cat and her family to Korean Peninsula. Knowing Inca and her way of thinking, you can guess that some important mission needs to be accomplished as well.

With “Cat Detectives in the Korean Peninsula”, R.F. Kristi has created another beautiful and heart-warming story of cats, their human Missy, further animals, and a mission. It is a very 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, an important mission, and it has a really good flow. It is the eighth book in a series and – as I also enjoyed the first and second ones, I am looking forward to reading more of the series.

This is a book for you if you like steady-paced, funny, and heart-warming stories for children (8-12), lovely illustrations, if you love animals, and if you like interesting four-legged characters.
