Thomas Weston was born to be a reporter. He’s practically grown up in the newsroom of the local paper where his mother is editor. So when he suggests a school paper for his middle school, he’s disappointed to learn the principal isn’t going to give him the editor position without holding a contest… whoever submits the best article will be named editor. The perfect idea for an article arises when all of the cats go missing in Fairview, including his own cat, Web, and his best friend’s cat. Now Thomas is determined to find all of the cats… and write the best article.

What a charming little mystery this was! I must admit, I don’t read middle grade often, but when I do, I’m usually a bit wary, but this book was not a disappointment at all. In fact, it was delightful! It was adorable and fun, perfect for the middle grade mystery reader. I liked Thomas a lot, and loved his determination and amateur sleuthing. Another fun aspect were the humorous newspaper headlines sprinkled throughout the book that Thomas thinks of randomly for almost every situation. My only real issue with the book was that there were quite a few typos, but if you can look past that, this was a real treat to read!

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
