Official Summary: “An artifact gone missing. A jungle full of clues. Can one cat detective save a national treasure?
Inca the Siberian Kitty can’t wait to add Sri Lanka to the list of places she’s explored. But before her paws touch the sandy beaches, she learns a local museum needs her crime-solving skills to track down a stolen ancient sword. With her trusty diary in tow, Inca leaps whisker-first down a trail of clues that leads her deep into the wild jungle.
After getting a little help from a baby elephant and her not-so-distant leopard cousins, she learns about the country’s rich history and just how important it is to restore the sword to its rightful place. With her furry family and new friends by her side, Inca can feel she’s close to getting her claws on the sword… but it’ll take teamwork to save a priceless piece of history.
Serendipity Mystery is the 7th standalone children’s book in the Diary of a Snoopy Cat series, which is purrfect for kids ages 7-12. If you and your child like new cultural experiences, animal detectives, and tales of teamwork, then you’ll love R.F. Kristi’s globetrotting adventures.” – Goodreads
Review: The voice actor for this was a really great choice, her cat voice was just so on point. I felt like I really was listening to a younger person talking as the cat. The amount of knowledge and history that was told about the area was really interesting. You could really tell the Author had done her research and was being true to the country and the area.
It was so simply done as well, had me smiling a few times in multiple places. The humor and tone were just so well done. It was just a light adventure kid’s story. Really interested to read/listen to more of the Author’s work.
It did feel a little fast in some places, did feel like it could have been slowed down a little.
