"Hits right in the gold" Review of Dead Bird through the Cat Door



Dead Bird through the Cat Door, the second in the Megabyte Mystery Series and nominee for the John Spray Mystery Award, was reviewed in the CM Magazine Canadian Review of Materials


It received three *** and was recommended for children nine to eleven years old. 


Here's an excerpt from the review: 


In a riotous mixture of Macbeth quotations, odd scientific facts, the good effects of pet-visiting in senior-citizen housing, cat shows, and wild-life sanctuaries, the twins sleuth their way to a solution to the mystery, foiling the bad guys and saving their cat from the villains' hands.


 ... All this is accomplished in a rip-roaring, punny manner that I suspect nine-to-eleven-year-olds will find irresistible. ... Jan Markley has her target audience firmly in her sights, and for them, she hits right in the gold.


Can I get a Woot! Woot!
