During a bowling tournament, Jasper Drew, Kitsville's crime fighting cat, must save the stolen prize money.
The Kitsville Caper is an ultra short story (less than 1,000 words) that I read it in five minutes.
It is dogged by poor writing. The author narrates too much, tells and doesn't show. I know this is a children's story, but the same basic writing rules apply.
Also the visual of the cat's coughing up slimey hairballs and knocking over live gophers was disturbing and gross. Sorry, I wish I had better things to say. For the record I have an eight and a ten-year old, so I read a lot of children's stories.
Meet Jasper Drew Cat, Kitsville’s crime fighting detective. In his first daring adventure, Jasper must solve a mystery involving the sudden disappearance of a large sum of money at a bowling tournament.
With his keen sense for danger, he risks his nine lives to find the criminal and save the day. Can he succeed, or will crime prevail?
