The Kitsville Caper

Japer Drew Kat, #1

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.
