I picked this up because I love animals and am always looking for an interesting animal adventure, even if it is a children's/youth's story. The story seems to be centered around granny and her grand-daughter, but the heroes of the day are granny's collection of stray or unwanted animals. When granny wins the lottery, thieves plot to steal granny's cat, Oscar, and ransom him off for her winnings. It bothered me that the thieves were teenagers and that the little grand-daughter was unaware of the ...more

My Children and I really do like Catnapped. But I do wish that there were more visuals in color for my younger child age of 1, none the less she enjoyed hearing us read aloud. Reading what people young or old would do for money it too crazy, Jack and Cass got more than they bargained for when entering Nanna's house. I'm a Cat Lady myself so it made it easy and enjoyable to read.

It's a perfectly cute book for a 5 year old. My 8 year old was disappointed because the story wasn't more elaborate. Yeah, my 8 year old uses words like elaborate. I asked him what his review was and he said 3 stars. So there you go.

Great book

I wish it were longer but it was a very good book other than that. I gave it four stars because it said that pre teens and teens would love it, and I though it was kinda short.

Cute little story of a kindhearted animal loving lady and her granddaughter.
A tiny tale for the young and young at heart.

Catnapped was free on Kindle a while back and I finally got around to reading it. It's a cute, quick read that will bring to mind a bit of "Home Alone" and the "Secret Life of Pets" movie. When animal-loving Granny wins the lottery, she decides to use it to help homeless pets. Two bugling thieves hear about this and set about to kidnap a cat for ransom. Hilarity ensues as the animals in the home that is a bit more like a zoo fight back and defend their own.

Charming early chapter mystery book of less than fifty pages that is perfect for the beginning reader. Jenna bemoans the fact that her Nanna has moved from a bustling Australian city to a quiet house on Wattle Drive. Well, actually not that quiet, Nanna has adopted several pets: Oscar a large orange cat, Goliath, a large Great Dane, Cleo, a black and white cat, Albert, a python snake, and Polly, a chatterbox parrot, who enjoys watching police shows. One night while watching TV, Nanna screams wit ...more

A quick book to read to children. Upper elementary kids could read this on their own. The illustrations are simple but help the reader visual the story as there are not that many details.
The setting is in Australia with a grandmother that keeps adopting pets. Her granddaughter thinks grandma's street is too quiet.
As the story unfolds it is exciting. I wanted that part to be developed more.

It's ok.

I liked it but somebody needed to find out about the robbing. It would have been much more exciting if they did, but for the most part it was good.

Quick, cute read

Super fast to read and a fun little story. May be better for younger kids, as it is quite short.
