Reviews for “Why Kimba Saved The World” from amazon.com:
“Secret missions, world takeovers – who knew being a kitten could be so difficult?
From the moment they are found, Kimba and her sister, Hiro, are adored. Discovered before they could even see, Mama and Daddy have cared for them, loved them and made them a part of their family. As they grow, and venture about, they begin to study the world around them. But that is inside the house. Through the window, Kimba sees a whole other world she wants to discover. A world of independence. Unbeknownst to them, from the moment of their birth, the kittens were being watched – chosen, as they were, for a special mission. Watched not by their humans, the other house-cats, or even the smelly dog, but by those in a mirror. It will be one year later when they make their presence known and a conspiracy for a takeover is presented. Kimba’s loyalties between her kind and her family would be tested, and the freedom she has always wanted will be at hand – if only she will complete her mission. Meg Dendler’s debut novel, “Why Kimba Saved the World,” her first in the Cats in the Mirror series, is a charming fantasy book appropriate for middle grade youth, cat lovers, or any animal lover in general. A chapter book, perfect for school rooms and personal libraries, comes complete with added photos to personalize the experience.” Arkansas Book Reviewer
“My son is 11 years old and reads books mostly about robots, wars and dinosaurs. When I handed him “Why Kimba Saved the World”, he didn’t seem to take much notice. I went to check on him later and found him reading it like his life depended on it! He came to dinner describing every detail! When he was finished reading, he wanted to know how long he had to wait for another book about Kimba. I have never seen him so excited about a book! Since then, he has been checking out books about animals from the library and started writing a book on his own! I highly recommend this book. It has opened up a whole new world for my son!”
“This is a great book about what it means to be a family. Kimba, the main character, is a playful, curious, and brave feline who is met with a hard choice. It’s an entertaining read and I found myself laughing out loud and reading portions to my husband that I thought were particularly funny. I talked about the book so much he ended up reading it too and he enjoyed it just as much as I did. I’m purchasing a hard copy for my niece who loves animals and I can’t wait to give it to her!”
“Good read for kids with a lot of suspense and helps us know what our household pets might do while we are away from them. Short book and very fun. It is easy to read and for any child that has a pet cat or just likes cats.”
“Cats have a soft spot in my heart, and so does “Why Kimba Saved the World,” a book about cats. Well, not regular cats–though, they are amazing–but cats who have a collective secret mission. Kimba, an all-white cat with a rebellious streak, is enlisted into an agency of cats who can communicate through mirrors. They tell her of her real heritage, one where humans aren’t the loving caretakers of cats.This book captures cats with amazing accuracy, and the interactions between the cats and their owners are realistic. Who doesn’t grab their cats and hug and kiss them like their own children? (I know I do.) It’s an easy read, and it’s suitable for the whole family. Children will love Kimba’s desperate need to accomplish ridiculous missions outside and inside her home. Parents can relate to Kimba’s owners. Cats may find themselves in Kimba or Hiro or…er, that’s right. Cats can’t read! Why Kimba Saved the World will make any reader believe that cats aren’t from this world.”
“Even though I’m not a kid, I’m a kid at heart, and that’s where it matters!
I love cats, so loving this book was only a natural turn of events! I love the character Kimba, and I love the whole story line! If you have a kid or are a kid at heart you will enjoy this nice tail, err.. I mean tale, and your kids will too! Highly recommend to anyone from 9 – 99! Good Work!!”
