Grade 2-4–The Gaskitt's sly and curious cat, Horacio, has gone missing. This tale of adventure and mystery starring the quirky family, a group of robbers, and a very strange substitute teacher reveals clues to its whereabouts throughout the cleverly illustrated story. Mrs. Gaskitt hardly ever gets out of bed, and Horacio is not the only pet in the community that has disappeared. Colorful illustrations help readers connect the unusual and often-amusing activities taking place in the town, especially the maps and small clocks throughout the pages that suggest many things going on at the same time. The English to Spanish translation does a good job of conveying the humor and mystery of the story. Children will enjoy this fun chapter book.–Shannon Dye Gemberling, Peoria Public Library, AZ END
