Book Review: The Case of the Cereal Robber by Perry Elisabeth Kirkpatrick

Title: The Case of the Cereal Robber
Written By: Perry Elisabeth Kirkpatrick
Genre: Christian Children’s Mystery
Recommended Ages: Any


I’ve been waiting for this book for a long time. I read the first two right after they came out and then waited. And waited. And waited. Finally, there’s another book about Mia! And it does not disappoint. At all. Ever.

Characters: 1/1

Mia is amazing as always. Her snarkyness, sarcasm, and utter cat-ness are perfect. I can totally picture a cat thinking the way Mia does. Of course, Keith is a great cat owner and detective just like always.

Dialogue: 1/1

I love how Perry had the barks and meows of the other animals become words to Mia. Between that and the actual humans who talked, all of the dialogue worked into the story nicely.

Plot/Storyline: 1/1

Even though this is the third book in the series, I think it can still be read fairly easily by itself. The reasons Mia can write, etc., are explained in slightly less detail than they were in the first book. As for the plot, I loved the twists and turns this story had. I was completely at a loss as to what the robbers were really up to until the very last chapter when all is revealed. But now I NEED THE NEXT BOOK!

Overall Writing Quality: 1/1

Very good. I didn’t notice a single typo or grammatical mistake except the ones that were intentional and that Mia herself pointed out.

Un-put-down-ability: 1/1

I had to put this book down when my husband came to bed and then again when he came home earlier than I expected the next day. But if none of that had happened, I would have read this book in one sitting.

Conclusion: 5/5

My only complaint about this book is the way it ends! Too much of a cliffhanger there. What’s going to happen next? And when do I get the next book? *pleading cat eyes* (because Mia wouldn’t like the puppy dog eyes people usually say they have)
