Alien Cats?

Why Kimba Saved the World (Cats in the Mirror) Book 1

Written by Meg Dendler

Kimba,pic

First in a series of middle grade chapter books featuring a family which includes four cats and a dog along with their human family. In this book, Kimba, a heterochromatic cat, is recruited by an agency of sci-fi cats to restore cats to their rightful place as rulers of the universe.

Kimba is distinct not only due to the fact that she has one green and one blue eye, but also because she combines the curiosity of a cat with the sensitivity of a human. Kimba and her sister Hiro’s lives change one day when Kimba sees a mysterious image in the bathroom mirror. Turns out a race of cats led by its leader Regalus are plotting a world-wide takeover and Kimba has been selected to be one of their spies. But Kimba has never even been outside the house, and Hiro has even less interest in changing her comfortable existence. How can they possibly succeed?

The story line starts out slowly, then builds up as Kimba eventually must choose between her family and her cat lineage. Dendler knows the character and personality of felines well; she does a superb job of getting into Kimba’s head and allowing the reader to identify with her. Middle grade readers who love animals will like this book; it paints a realistic picture with enough sci-fi details to make the story convincing. In the end, Kimba, like many of her young readers in their everyday lives, is forced to make a difficult decision. Where does her loyalty lie?

Recommended as an independent read for students age nine through twelve or as a read aloud by a librarian or classroom teacher. Available in kindle and paperback. The second and third books in the series have recently been released.

Today I am excited to launch the Ultimate Reading SPRING QUEST for middle graders and beyond!  Why? Because this is the reason that I write for young people.  Our youth are the leaders of tomorrow and our hope for the future, so they need to read great stories!  And that’s why I write!   Stories that will shape their lives and help them through tough times. Stories that will introduce them to  characters with whom they can connect, cry, laugh, and shout out their indignation at injustices in their world. I believe that a great story can be an escape, a safe haven and a learning experience all at once.  Young people deserve literature that will engage, inspire and inform them as well as it entertains them.  That’s why I write for young people. Because the stories of today will inspire the leaders of tomorrow.

I am on a personal quest to give my students and yours only the very best to read! That’s why I wrote the Jewel of Peru and the sequel will be coming soon.  I want The Quest series to take my readers on an unbelievable journey and have them experience stories that they will remember for the rest of their lives.  The Jewel of Peru is a magical adventure through time, taking young Captain Christopher and his loyal crew of orphaned stowaways on a perilous quest in search of Christopher’s missing parents.
