Elements of Frankenstein mythology from Mary Shelley to Hollywood are delightfully jumbled together in a fast paced comic adventure set in 19th century Germany. Wily Rolf and roly-poly Hermann are alley cats with a pretty good life. Using cunning and stealth they easily purloin food from townsfolk and animals alike. But a routine stop at a local mansion, with intent to steal treats from the owners' pampered dog, runs afoul of two burglars, with intent to steal the owners' jewels. In the chaos, Hermann inadvertently gobbles a diamond ring. Now the cats are hotly pursued by the murderous thieves and their equally murderous hound (from whom, to be honest, Rolf and Hermann once stole food). They can't hide forever, and they fear wolves in the surrounding forest, so they try to escape on a sailing ship. But it's guarded by an army of fearsome bilge rats. To get aboard, much to their humiliation, they must strike a bargain with the pack rat leader, promising to bring him a single item to add to his vast collection of junk. The item is a pocket watch -- worn by Dr. Frankenstein.

About the Author:

Author S.S. Wilson is veteran of 25 years as a screenwriter and film director with a talent for turning the familiar into the unexpected. Short Circuit side-stepped movie robot clichés to give us the unforgettable Johnny Five. Tremors was both an action film and a send-up of 1950s monster movies. In his first novel, Wilson takes us on a whirlwind adventure that, along the way, pokes fun at classic Hollywood horror films. S.S. Wilson's first novel Tucker's Monster won several awards including: the2011 Bill Fisher Award for Best First Book - Fiction, presented at the 23rd annual Benjamin Franklin Awards and the USA Best Books 2011 award Best New Fiction.

Review:

 Four and a half stars: Despite the skewed point of view of the two feline protagonists, FRAIDY CATS is a faithful recounting of the Frankenstein story with "explanations" of what really happened and why. This gives the narrative the veneer of seriousness in the Boris Karloff rendering but becomes, rather quickly, a comedy worthy of Mel Brooks himself. - See more at: indiereader.com/2013/12/fraidy-cats/  Reviewed by Ed Bennett for IndieReader

"Like Frankenstein, this novel creates something unique by stitching together odds and ends, then applying a few healthy doses of creative electricity. "  "Also, despite targeting a younger demographic, this story maintains an all-ages appeal by not speaking down to its readers." Kirkus Review
