To Catch a Cat Thief
Author: Sean Cummings

Release Date: September 15, 2015
Publisher: Rebelight Publishing
Hundreds of cats are missing! Fear not-Penelope Ann Pickersgill and her hippie grandma are on the case. While her friends go to cool camps, twelve-year-old Penelope has to spend the summer with Grandma Bev, who is convinced that cat-eating aliens are beaming the town's furry friends aboard their mother ship at night. Lights in the sky point to UFO's, but Penelope is sure there's a more logical explanation. With a little help from Sherlock Holmes, she and Grandma Bev set out to find the cats. Will they be able to solve the mystery before all the cats in Thornhill disappear?
I pointed to the flyers. “Thirty missing cats in a city of two hundred thousand? That’s not much. They’re probably at the animal shelter.”
Grandma Bev shook her head. “Well now. That’s what I thought, so I went to the animal shelter yesterday morning before you got here. And do you want to know something?”
“What’s that?” Her eyes narrowed.
“They haven’t found a stray cat for more than a week. Not one. And they adopted out their last cat ten days ago, so for the first time ever, the animal shelter is one hundred percent cat-free. Now what do you make of that?”
I crumbled a handful of spelt crackers into my soup and stirred. “Well that’s a good thing, right? I mean, maybe people are taking care of their cats now, and that’s why there are no more strays.” “Maybe. Or something else might be at work,” Grandma Bev replied.
