To Catch a Cat Thief
by Sean Cummings
Publisher: Rebelight Publishing
Genre: Middle Grade/mystery/humor
Hundreds of cats are missing! Fear not-Penelope Ann Pickersgill and her hippie grandma are on the case. While her friends go to cool camps, twelve-year-old Penelope has to spend the summer with Grandma Bev, who is convinced that cat-eating aliens are beaming the town's furry friends aboard their mother ship at night. Lights in the sky point to UFO's, but Penelope is sure there's a more logical explanation. With a little help from Sherlock Holmes, she and Grandma Bev set out to find the cats. Will they be able to solve the mystery before all the cats in Thornhill disappear?
I WAS A BIT OF A DOUBTER when it came to the whole alien abduction thing. Any species of extraterrestrial would have travelled tens of thousands of light years to get here. They would need an advanced form of transportation for interstellar space travel that was so complex it would basically melt Earth people’s brains if we tried to understand it. Still, I had to admit, solving a mystery about missing cats might actually be more interesting than sitting around my grandmother’s house counting the days until I could go back home.
“Okay, Granny,” I said. “Let’s just say we are being watched. Why Thornhill when there is an entire planet of far more interesting places to visit? And why steal these cats? Why not some other city’s cats?”
“Food,” she said with a hint of dread in her voice. She pulled the van into the garage and hopped out. “It’s obvious to me. The aliens are stealing the cats, and they’re eating them. We’re just the start. I bet they’re planning on hitting other towns too. Why, Planet Earth has a near unlimited supply of cats to eat when you think about it. But they won’t get Sally. Over my dead body!”
