Cartoon cat adventures, Piper Dada-Maroni
24 May, 2021
Nine Lives is the ninth and final book in the Flying Furballs series in which all characters are cats or dogs.
Claude D’Bonair is a pilot for the Cats Air Corps and is the heroic main character of this suspenseful tale of the clash between the Cats and Dogz.
The book opens to Major Tom (a deceitful and dangerous cat) reading Claude’s eulogy as his cat friends are weeping and in shock.
Alas, we discover that Claude isn’t dead and the book takes us on a hair-raising chase full of adventure and twists, which include a plot to destroy the very famous Eiffel Tower.
I was introduced to many interesting and complicated characters and it was hard to put this book down amidst the turns and drama. The author did a good job of also including some humorous parts to lighten things up a bit.
The pictures make you feel like you are really there and also help you to remember each of the characters.
That’s not all though, and you will have to read more on your own to find out what happens as the plot thickens with each page. I enjoyed the pace of the story. The graphics are well done and overall I really enjoyed reading Flying Furballs: Nine Lives.
I would recommend this book to people under thirteen because it’s a bit cartoony and on the shorter side. I would rate this book an eight out of ten.
