9780060529826: The Stink Files, Dossier 002: To Scratch a Thief

Life is good for James Edward Bristlefur.

The sophisticated British secret agent cat is settling into his new home in New Jersey. He's become quite fond of his uncouth but loving new family. He's even gotten used to being called Mr. Stink. (Although he does not appreciate jokes about his new name, thanks very much.)

Then a dark shadow falls across his happy home. Someone is threatening Mr. Stink's new family -- a thief who leaves no pawprints. As James investigates the crimes, he realizes that a frightening old enemy lurks at the center of a web of conspiracy, plotting against him. Who is the hidden paw behind these misdeeds? And what grudge does he bear against our hero?

As every cat with a past knows, sometimes you need to sharpen your claws ...

About the Author:

Holm & Hamel can neither confirm nor deny any knowledge regarding the whereabouts of Agent Bristlefur, alias Mr. Stink. They may or may not live in the vicinity of Washington, D.C., and they are rumored to have more than zero but fewer than two cats.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5 - In this second adventure, the cat counterspy, Mr. Stink, is still tracking down the murderer of his former human, and the six-toed white Persian, Macavity, is his prime suspect. While on the trail of the killer, Mr. Stink becomes involved in discovering who is stealing expensive bags of cat chow from the Parkside Pet Foods Store, owned by his new family. In scenes that will cause chuckles, he leaps onto a garbage truck to catch a ride, and he gets help from two mice who high-five one another and from a feisty dog who sends and retrieves messages via the Bark Network. The feline puts together clues to conclude that Macavity and his gang are the culprits here as well. Isabella, a lovely orange-furred cat, is frequently Mr. Stink's rescuer just as his nemesis is ready to pounce. Drawings in tones ranging from creamy white and pearl gray to ebony embellish the mystery and provide a realistic atmosphere that invites young readers into this striped sleuth's adventures. With comical intrigue, a cliff-hanger ending, and plot twists, this novel will appeal to young readers of detective stories, and it's an extra treat for "Geronimo Stilton" fans. - James K.
