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
Atticus Claw, hugely popular cat-burglar turned good guy, is back for another adventure, with a decidedly seasonal flavour. The Cheddar family have been invited to spend Hogmanay in a castle in Scotland, and Atticus is going with them. What’s more, his friends Bones and Mimi are going too. It sounds like the purr-fect way to welcome in the New Year, but strange things are going on at Biggnaherry Castle, and Atticus is going to need all his detective skills to work it out. Atticus is a skilful detective and, as ever, there’s a satisfying mystery at the heart of the story. There’s lots of humour too, and an appealing cast of characters, human and animal – in fact, it’s the cat’s whiskers! ~ Andrea Reece
