Blurb; Girl by day. Cat by night. Ready for adventure! In the fifth book of this popular chapter book series, Kitty, a little girl with catlike superpowers, is on a mission to stop a thief from ruining her town’s annual lantern parade. With dramatic two-color art on every page and an emphasis on friendship, family, building self-confidence, and bravery, Kitty and the Great Lantern Race is perfect for newly independent readers and fans of Rebecca Elliott’s Owl Diaries.
Kitty is proud of the lantern she has crafted for Hallam City’s Festival of Light. But just as the parade starts, a series of mysterious burglaries occur in the crowd. Kitty spots a shadowy figure and knows that she must use her catlike superpowers to investigate. Chasing the culprit without the help of her cat crew tests her bravery and superhero skills, but Kitty’s determined to track down the thief before the city’s festival is ruined.
My Review; Yes! Another children’s book but why not? The cover is beautiful! The whole book is gorgeously illustrated throughout. In the beginning it gives an introduction to the main character and the different cats within the story. It also has some facts about cats too.
Perfect for cat lovers. A 100 page read. This is book five in the Kitty series but reads fine as a Standalone. A brilliant children’s book full of imagination and colour. It’s about the festival of light but a thief is soon apparent and its kitty’s job to find the thief and return the items to save the night.
Within is a message that stealing is not okay. That making people feel happier is better than people feeling bad. That even if you did something wrong you can still fix it and I believe all children need to know that. I am keeping this to pass on to my daughter so she can read it when she’s a little older. Highly recommend! Four stars from me. Perfect reading material for ages 6-10.
