November 2014 Book of the Month  A cat with a difference! Atticus Claw may look like any other tabby cat but, when some famous works of art go missing, Atticus Claw – once a cat burglar but now a police cat – is on the case. In a fast-paced adventure, Atticus Claw not only indentifies the prime suspect but also gets caught up in the equally pressing disaster that is about to befall  Inspector Cheddar of Tate Modern. Atticus Claw does some serious sleuth work in the heart of the art world.


Atticus Claw Learns to Draw Synopsis

Famous works of art are going missing. But the art world needn't fear because cat burglar turned police cat Atticus is on the case. The prime suspect is Ricardo Butteredsconi - Italian theme park entrepreneur and art connoisseur. Atticus gets to work.

But then to make matters worse the hapless Inspector Cheddar goes missing from the Tate Modern, and Atticus and his friends suspect not only Butteredsconi but his evil pet pig.
