Review – Mariella Mystery Investigates: A Kitty Calamity

September 4, 2015

Mariella Mystery Investigates A Kitty Calamity

When all the cats in town start disappearing Mariella and the rest of the Mystery Girls get to work.  The girls come up with a few theories and set out to solve the mystery.  Things get hectic as more and more cats disappear but the girls never give up and finally solve the mystery!

Mariella Mystery Investigates A Kitty Calamity by Kate Pankhurst is a wonderful addition to the Mariella Mystery series.  The book stands alone just fine but young readers will be happy to know there are more Mystery Girl books to read.

Mariella takes notes as she investigates the mystery and the book includes pages torn from her journal as well as newspaper clippings.  The addition of adorable drawings enhances this fun book!  This is one of those children’s books that doesn’t feature many adults and I did have to suspend disbelief a time or two but it never bothered me.  I didn’t figure the ending out ahead of time but found it satisfying.  This is a great book for young mystery lovers, especially girls.

    I love that the book features little girls and that there are cats in the story. Sounds like a book most all children will enjoy.

    I loved all mystery books as a kid and still have the whole collection of Nancy Drew reads – these sounds so good!

    Kathy, I am returning to blogging after another short break. This book does sound like a wonderful book for young female readers. Excellent review! 😄
