Anton and Cecil Book 3: Cats Aloft by Lisa Martin, Valerie Martin

Anton and Cecil have had two great adventures so far and this one is even more spectacular.  After all, have you ever flown in an air balloon?

Algonquin Young Readers and Net Galley gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published December 27th.

They've been away from home for a while, so they decide it's about time to return.  They know they'll have to take a train and ride on a ship to make the journey but they aren't quite sure how to make all the connections.  It's good thing the mice are their friends and they send messages down the line so the cats are met at their destination and then directed forward to the next leg of journey.  Things are going well.  But when they see a huge fair, they just have to visit.  And, after some excitement for Cecil, they find out that there is a dognapper at work.  The bloodhound asks if they would be willing to help solve the case.  Sure!

Before long, the cats are separated, Cecil gets a ride in an air balloon that goes down, Anton has to find his way to the circus and he meets a tiger and a spider monkey.  They also have to face a lot of rats.  The story is fun and exciting and you have animals everywhere.

One thing about it, Anton and Cecil won't bore you!
