Animal Agents: Detectives and their pets

The theme of this year’s children’s summer reading challenge is Animal Agents: a mash up of appealing animal characters and detective stories. To make sure us adults aren’t left out, once a week here on the blog over the summer holidays we’re going to be featuring detective mysteries, brilliant books with animals in, and even some intriguing books which manage to combine the two!

We’ll begin with the thoroughly charming The Cat Who series. The Cat Who Could Read Backwards is the first in a wonderful series featuring our reluctant hero Jim Qwilleran. Having inherited more money than he knows what to do with, and finding himself divorced and in his forties, Jim must build a new life for himself. This he does with the help of two charming Siamese cats and a budding friendship with the town librarian. Inevitably, events intervene in the shape of a murder – and Jim’s beloved cats reveal hitherto unexpected detective skills! A really easy read, these books have an appeal all their own – don’t be surprised if you get hooked!
