Kids’ Book Review: Review: Furball Spy Cat

Furball is fancy. Furball is brave. Furball is the best super spy cat working for Meow-6!

Along with his spy buddies, Kit the spy-gadget inventor and Jade the karate cat, these crime-fighting friends go after the roughest, toughest villains from Klawz — the evilest organisation there is.

After a very successful mission saving the moon, the spy-trio are rewarded with a trip to Wet Willy’s Waterworld. It’s all fun and waterslides, until the spies discover something fishy. 
Waterworld seems to be lacking some… water?

Which devious villain is behind this? And what exactly are they plotting? Can Furball, Kit and Jade uncover the devious truth and stop the baddies from delivering their evil plan?

Furball Spy Cat by author-illustrator extraordinaire Adrian Beck is an action-packed and hilarious read. The jokes are endless, and the bad guy butt-kicking doesn’t stop either. I love that the story is narrated by Kit, even though the focus is generally on Furball. It’s a giant shoutout to all the sidekicks, who really run the show (in case you didn’t know!).

It’s also a shoutout to the underdogs, who sometimes feel invisible. Kit is smart and strong and a super-duper spy, but sometimes he can’t see that. But he’ll learn. They’ll all learn!

Beck’s illustrations are as big and bold as his words. Fun and funky and so expressive, they dominate the pages and immerse readers in the Meow-6 world. You will adore exploring each and every one of them.

This is a winner for junior fiction fans. If you love a funny, kooky read, this one is for you.
