Review:
Begin with one greedy mayor, add one shallow wife and one overgrown bully of a son. Blend this nefarious mix with a group of naive townsfolk, and you have the ingredients for a predictable story. Yet this pleasing book sustains interest by including the save-the-day schemes of a clever cat with his own greedy kin to win over. Whimsical scenes of owls imitating dogs combine with grim proclamations and upside-down inquisitions by the evil mayor. All’s well that ends well, and never did a grand comeuppance satisfy more than in this rollicking visit to Felicity-by-the-Lake.
