Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5–In this third installment in the series, feline secret agent James Edward Bristlefur, aka Mr. Stink, travels to Paris as the winner of a competition to be the new spokescat for Le Chat Gourmet cat food. After a round of publicity appearances, he is ready to vacation with his human family, the Greens. But of course, adventure beckons to him, this time in the form of a black cat that crosses his path. Mr. Stink follows this mysterious character to a ruined castle known as Catlandia where he is hailed as His Royal Highness, Prince Furrdinand. This case of mistaken identity has a lot in common with Anthony Hope-Hawkins's The Prisoner of Zenda, although it is unlikely many readers will have heard of the novel or the movie. Mr. Stink has to unravel a mystery that leads not only to the real prince, but also to a revelation about his own true origins. The plot is further complicated by a cat villain named Ratsputin and the reappearance of Mr. Stink's nemesis, the evil Macavity. The story ends with a cliff-hanger that suggests another sequel. The book is embellished with a few black-and-white drawings that contribute to the mood. A short, entertaining, and mildly suspenseful tale for reluctant readers.–Tim Wadham, Maricopa County Library District, Phoenix, AZ

When I finished the series I donated the books to a local fifth grade teacher. She reports the books have become a class favorite. I bought the first book at a thrift shop and purchased the other two through Amazon for my son who hates to read. He enjoyed them and admitted it. I read them and got hooked also. Good books, however we need book 4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bought this for our child who doesn't have lots of interest in most books. However, from the get-go this series was a hit. It is cute and James Bonish-ish in a kid friendly way. Would recommend this book and the series for any child who likes animals, spy action, or humorous books.
