The Sign of the Cat by Lynne Jonell
I loved this book! A boy who can talk cat who is kidnapped and trained as a ship's boy. A missing princess. "It would have been so much better with a tiger". And of course, there was Brig, the tiger. Cats and kittens and bad guys and so much adventure! I think that kids in grades 4-8 will enjoy this book, although sensitive children should beware and stay away because kittens are squished, ground, and eaten. There is not a lot of description of that, but it is one thing the bad guy does, so be aware. I received this book free to review from Netgalley and I enjoyed the story very much.
