The Lovereading4Kids comment
Fans will be delighted to find this new adventure for Atticus Claw, the deservedly popular cat burglar turned crime solver. And what an adventure it is! Helping tidy out the attic at the Littleton-on-Sea home for abandoned cats, Atticus finds a mysterious box. It apparently belonged to a real life explorer and could be the clue to lost Mayan treasure. Of course there’s nothing our Atticus likes more than a mystery – and the cats’ home could certainly do with a boost of funds – so in less than two shakes of a cat’s tail he’s on the case! Clever detective he may be, but Atticus is cat through and through; Gray skilfully maintains the balance between animal and mystery story and keeps the story believable no matter how exotic the plot gets. Great fun, another cat-tastic adventure! ~ Andrea Reece
