The Case of the Jewel Covered Cat Statues by Cindy Vincent Litfuse Blog Tour

About the book:
Buckley and Bogey, Cat Detectives, find their next big case with the Buckley and Bogey Cat Detective Agency to be their most complicated ever! It all starts when someone hides a mysterious package in their Mom's antique store --- in the middle of the night! Of course, the boys find it, and put it in a nice, safe place, until they can open it . . . and, find the rightful owner. But that's when a whole bunch of suspicious people show up in St. Gertrude, and every single one of them seems to be after that package! Holy Catnip! Plus, everything happens just when a priceless, jeweled statue collection goes on display at the St. Gertrude Museum. Missing from that collection are two jewel covered cat statues that disappeared almost a hundred and fifty years ago.

But soon Buckley and Bogey wonder how long those statues will stay missing. Because this is one case that really keeps them on their paws! From a trip to the Museum, and to an old church for the Blessing of the Animals; and from dinosaurs to diamonds, they end up dodging shady suspects the whole time. It sure helps to have their friends with them, especially when the bad guys make a beeline for boys. That's because it becomes very clear, very quick --- the priceless cat statues aren't the only cats those crooks are after! Holy Mackerel!

My thoughts:
Some of the first books I recall reading independently and enjoying were mysteries.  There was something about looking for the clues with the characters and seeing if you could figure it out before the end of the book.  This is a fun mystery with the added element that it is from the point of view of the family cats.  What kid hasn't felt awkward and clumsy like Buckley or wanted to be just like their older sibling?

It was a fun ride tagging along with there two cat detectives as they worked through another mystery while keeping up with their nighttime watch duties at home, see there really is a reason why cats get so active at night, they are doing a job!  I plan to pass this along to my kids.  I can't wait to see what they think of it.

I loved how the cats worked behind the scenes.  They had to come up with ways to let people know what they were thinking and doing without being able to speak.  Typing things up on the computer and leaving mysterious notes.  I also appreciated how Vincent worked in animal adoptions as well.
