I received a copy of this book free for review.

The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks is a very cute middle grade book that your kids are going to love. I love cats, and I love Christmas! This book is filled with mystery, great characters, and lots of fun.

Buckley and Bogey, along with their other kitty siblings are on the case when a house on their street is robbed of all of its Christmas gifts. This is a tough case and clues are hard to come by. The cats prepare for the worst…someone breaking

My Comments
Bogey and Buckley are Cat Detectives, brothers, and best friends. Bogey is the older one, calm and professional at all times. Buckley is the rookie who is still learning about investigating and he’s a little clumsy with his large paws. The entire story is from Buckley’s perspective. The story begins with Bogey and Buckley observing their human family putting the Christmas tree up in the house. Buckley has no idea what’s going on, has never heard of Christmas, and is surprised easily.

This story took a while for me to get into, probably because I had to adjust mind to the character, Buckley, who more or less a boy cat, who was fascinated with the world around him, but with an appetite for knowledge, despite how scary and diverse the world appeared to be.
It was amazing how Buckley’s questions about the littlest of things made me realize how often one can take for granted the knowledge and privileges that so easily come our way. Not many people have access to the things that ot

This delightfully entertaining story is told from the POV of Buckley Bergdorf , a newly adopted almost-2- year- old Maine Coon with paws so huge that he wonders if he will EVER grow into them!

Buckley idolizes his "big brother" Bogey, the top cat behind the Buckley and Bogey Cat Detective Agency, who is the complete antithesis of Buckley, Bogey is sleek and slim and it has been rumored that he could run so fast that sometimes his feet barely touched the ground! The other cats in the household cou

Another delightful mystery story for children and animal lovers of all ages! Who would not adore Buckley and Bogey, cat detectives? Fun reading for a quiet Christmas evening. :-)

Highly recommended, sweet animal stories.

In The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks, Buckley and Bogey return with a new case the smells suspiciously “grinch-y”. Someone is stealing the Christmas decorations right out of people’s homes! Even the cookies! And it’s up to Buckley and Bogey to crack the mystery.

If you’re a fan of Hank the Cowdog, but you also love cats, Buckley and Bogey is definitely a series you need to pick up! Not only are these cats entertaining in their adventures, but the stories are intriguing and mysterious. Sure

I usually try to break down reviews into the good and the bad, but honestly, when it comes to Buckley and Bogey, there really isn't any bad. They're the perfect books to curl up with, along with your own cat, and spend an afternoon or evening just diving into. I can't get enough of all of the individual characters in these books. Every single cat has their own personality and their own way of doing things. It's very much like every cat that I have ever known. The stories draw me in, every time,

Cindy Vincent’s book The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks was a delightful read. Mysteries are my favorite genre, and this one did not disappoint. This is the perfect text to give to a younger audience in order to introduce them to the mystery novel. The two main characters, Buckley and Bogey, who are based on Vincent’s beloved cats, are wonderful to follow as the reader tries to uncover the clues of the case with them. These detective sleuths are determined to protect their family from the C ...more

I had to squeal with delight when this book came in as my inner child comes out everytime I hear the word "cat". I own 4 felines myself. Three kittens (all a month apart) and "Donny" our pet stray cat.. she won't let me touch her but she actually came in the house last week to dine with me. So there you have it, grab a cat and read The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks. Cindy Vincent has written a wonderful story on how the cats Buckley and Bogley must find out who is stealing all the Chritmas ...more

The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks is an enjoyable, cute read. While I am older than the intended audience, I still (remarkably) found this book interesting. The characters were quirky (my favorite was Bogey), and while I do not particularly enjoy movies or books in which the main characters are animals the author actually made this story work. The cats were cute, and I loved the whole cast from The Wise One (the eldest cat in the house) to the Princess (the newest addition to the family an ...more

It seems impossible for Buckley and Bogey to be any more adorable, but add in the Christmas theme and this story is pure purr-fection for mystery lovers of all ages.

Buckley's first Christmas is coming up, and it's a whole new world of wonder opening up for the little guy. All is not well in St. Gertrude, though. A Grinch is stealing Christmas for the boys' neighbors, and it's only a matter of time before their home gets hit. What else is there for cat detectives to do but catch the bad guys and
