I was recently given the opportunity to read an advanced copy of the children’s book, The Case of the Tabloid Tattler and immediately jumped at the opportunity to be part of the blog tour for the release of said book. Below you will find my review and an interview with the second main character of the book, Keith.
Keith was rambling again. And his theory was so boring a mere yawn couldn’t express my feelings well enough. I was getting up to go hide under the bed when he said, “I just don’t know, Kitten. What do you think, huh?”
It was that silly way he’d been talking to me ever since I’d shown up on his doorstep three weeks ago. He’d been telling me every detail of every case, every hunch he had, not actually expecting me to reply. “He’s lucky I’m not a spy,” I told myself, “or from the press!”
Spy. Now there was a good idea.
Keith is a detective with a problem. He is supposed to be finding the person on Ms. Thornblood’s staff who is leaking information to the tabloids. Nothing he has tried has worked. Then, to his shock and surprise, his new cat comes up with an idea. And writes down the idea!
Recommended Reading Age:
The Case of the Tabloid Tattler is perfect for anyone ages 8 and up. Most kids under 8 would probably be bored and not understand most of it or I would say it is perfect for all ages.
This book is very well written and well worth the 30-60 minutes it takes to read. The characters are quirky, believable, and you either love ’em or you don’t like ’em at all. Or you feel sorry for them. It depends on the character, obviously.
Overall, there is nothing in The Case of the Tabloid Tattler that I had an issue with. There were a few typos, but since I was reading an advanced copy that hadn’t been through a final edit, that was to be expected. I highly recommend this book to anybody who enjoys mysteries, cats, detectives, or reading.
And now we come to the part of the show…er, I mean, blog post in which I head over to Keith’s office and interview him.
*knocks on door* Hears a slight response, turns the knob, and enters.
“Hello Keith, thank you for letting me come to your office today for an interview. I really appreciate you taking time to meet with me.”
“Oh–sure! Sorry; if seem a little unprepared. I tend to lose track of time when I’m reading–um–mysteries.”
Let me just put it this way: I try to be as kind and helpful to my clients as I possibly can. I try to follow what Jesus said and treat them the way I would want to be treated.
Whatever else Mia insinuated beyond that–you’ll have to interview her about it.”
Thank you again, Keith! It has been a pleasure interviewing you today!
