The Lovereading4Kids comment
A message in a bottle is all it takes for super-detective Atticus Claw, a cat with a difference, to be off on a great new adventure. Will he be all at sea? The message is from Fishook Frank who promises a reward of the Casket of Desires which contains the wish-giving sleeping mermaid if he is rescued. Will Atticus be able to get the reward? It needs all his most finely hones skilled to succeed!

Atticus Claw Goes Ashore by Jennifer Gray
Atticus is on beach tidying duty with the kittens when he finds a message in a bottle from Fishhook Frank. Fishhook is marooned on a desert island, but he promises Atticus treasure in exchange for his rescue! The treasure in question is the Casket of Desires, which contains a sleeping mermaid who has the power to grant any wish. But it is hidden in the deepest darkest part of the ocean, protected by the most hideous, fearsome sea-creatures known to pirate lore. Atticus sets out to rescue Fishhook Frank and find the Casket of Desires with his owners, the Cheddar family. But it's not all plain sailing. The pirate with the biggest beard-jumper in the nautical world - Captain Black Beard-Jumper - is also on the look out for the Casket and he'll curse anyone who gets in his way...
