About this title


Kids will be delighted by the funny, action-packed mystery and Rex Tabby's crime-fighting charm with activities at the end of each chapter.

In Whiskerville, U.S.A., Rex Tabby is the finest cat detective around. Ma Manx and her furry, feline family are a bunch of catsters who let their appetite get the best of them. When Rex catches Ma Manx and her boys stealing fish at the Fin-tastic Fish Company, the boys make a getaway and Ma is arrested. Behind bars, Ma Manx won't reveal her secrets, while out in Whiskerville, her boys, Rumpy and Stumpy, are planning how to rescue their Ma. As kids solve the mystery, activities from the Rex Tabby Junior Detective School are included to help kids learn how to be a cat detective.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-4–Written in the style of '30s and '40s gumshoe stories, this book features a Dick Tracy-like main character. Rex Tabby, premiere cat detective on the Whiskerville police force, is hot on the trail of Ma Manx and her twins, Rumpy and Stumpy. Just when he and partner Si Meeze finally have them cornered, the two kittens slip through their claws. Ma certainly won't tell where the youngsters are hiding, so the officers visit the local candy shop and playground, to no avail. Meanwhile, Rumpy and Stumpy make plans to spring their mother from jail. The climax includes a detective costume that looks suspiciously like Rex, sneezing and itching powders, and a ride on a roller coaster. There are puns and knock-knock jokes galore and cartoons appear on almost every page. Each chapter ends with questions or a problem to solve through which readers can practice their investigative skills. An additional purchase for fans of Bruce Hale's "Chet Checko Mystery" series (Harcourt) or where mysteries are in demand.–Terrie Dorio, Santa Monica Public Library, CA
