Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue

Publisher: Oxford

Review

Kitty’s mum is a superhero with cat powers, and Kitty wants to be just like her, but she’s afraid of the idea of going out at night on her own. Mum reminds her that she’s still very young, and when she gets older, she can be whoever and whatever she wants.

One night after mum has left in her natty, catty superhero costume, a very polite black and white cat climbs through the window and says he needs mum’s help: there’s a strange howling coming from the clock tower. Scrunching up her courage, Kitty puts on some cat ears and a black cape and follows the cat out into the town. Can Kitty be as brave as her mum believes she is and rescue whoever is trapped up high in the tower?

The first in a lovely new series for fans of Isadora Moon, Kitty is a relatable little girl whose night-time adventures feature a cast of lovely cat characters – adventurous Figaro, sophisticated Katsumi and curious Pixie. A gentle theme of friendship, bravery and being yourself also runs throughout.
