As they become friends, they go down to the beach to talk and swim. Over the summer, they continue to do different activities together. Read about what happens next in ‘Crazy Cat Kid’.
I think this story was a little bit repetitive. It didn’t have a problem and conflict and I think it could use more action. I thought it was about cats, but it didn’t really have much to do with cats. I feel though that it could be a great story with a bit more work. I give it three stars because it was ok, but it didn’t really keep my attention for very long. I think it is a great book for twelve year olds and up because I found some parts inappropriate for younger kids.
