Book Description

1 July 2011 Cat Kin
Pashki: the ancient Egyptian art of moving like a cat. The Cat Kin: London s most unusual after-school club. The Cat Kin are not the only ones with extraordinary skills. Ben Gallagher has stumbled on a far more sinister gang, ruled over by a man with a horrific past. Deep beneath the city streets hides the deadly secret that Ben and Tiffany must uncover but can the evil be stopped in time? Even with the help of their remarkable new teacher Geoff White, no-one can hope to escape unscathed when cat meets polecat... This is the 2nd thrilling novel in The Cat Kin series. Each book stands on its own within the series, so the books can be read in any order. (Book 1 is The Cat Kin, published by Strident in summer 2010.)

Review

CAT'S PAW, TAKE TWO Not all books get several reviews from me. But then, not all books are this good, and quite so deserving. As you ve already gathered from the title, I m back to going on about Nick Green and his second Cat Kin novel, which is finally to be published properly later this month. Cat s Paw is even better than The Cat Kin. (And because I m such a dreadful boaster, I have to rub your faces in the fact that I have read the final book in this trilogy, and that is better still! Really, really something to look forward to.) So, you will need to read Cat s Paw. You really will. At times it s quite unsettling, the people and the ideas that Nick put forward in this book. It really does feel as if we are reading about ordinary London children (albeit with cat skills), facing evil and dangerous people. And if you trust someone, the question is, should you? Apart from the adventure and the humour, what strikes me about the Cat Kin is their skills. They start out as perfectly ordinary children, and they learn so much in their Pashki classes. It s about leadership, and about decency. They have to show determination. They have to apply themselves. They develop. There is serious stuff, and also the more ordinary. You might have special skills and you might be out fighting baddies, but there are still difficult parents to deal with, and illness and friendship. As far as I m concerned, Nick could write more than three Cat Kin books. Wands are all very well, but this balancing on narrow walls or jumping across impossible gaps is quite more-ish. At least as long as it s not me doing the balancing or jumping or anything else impossible. Nick Green is truly one of the best writers of children s fiction today, and I don t know why he is neither rich nor famous. --The Bookwitch blog, August 15, 2011

About the Author

As a child Nick Green landed a tiny part in a TV drama serial and wondered about an acting career. Sadly, that was his acting career. Growing up in a peculiar village called Abbots Langley, he is the second oldest and second tallest of four brothers, and the only one who isn t ginger (so he has always felt like the odd one out). He now lives in Hertford with his wife, two children, and an unspecified number of cats.

5.0 out of 5 stars even better than Cat Kin! 26 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was caught up from the very first page! The idea of using the cat's skills to catch the "baddies" is intrigueing, and the author's imagination has created a whole new "science" of Pashki! You have to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. i couldnt put it down. I would recommend this to anyone between the ages of 11 and 77!

5.0 out of 5 stars They get better and better ... 21 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Cat Kin are back! And if The Cat Kin was good, this is even better. Although they do work as stand alone books, you'll enjoy them even more if you read them in order ... after the events of the first book, Ben and Tiffany are (not surprisingly) feeling a little troubled. And are having difficulty communicating with each other too, never mind with their friends and family. There's a pretty rough ride ahead for the pair of them, both emotionally and physically as Tiffany grieves for her lost mentor while Ben finds a new one to lead the Pashki group.
Once more Nick Green fearlessly tackles some tough issues head-on including homelessness and even touching briefly on abortion: the main focus though is on relationships including friendship, marriage, love, trust, loyalty, fear and all the ties that bind individuals together. Cosy answers are not provided to the questions and moral dilemmas posed: as in all the best books, readers are encouraged to work them out for themselves.
Weaving through the plot, rather like a cat between your legs is a further subtext, on the theme of being lost - whether intentionally, accidentally, physically or morally. I love the idea of the Oshtian Compass as a way of explaining how cats find their way home!
This is a little darker and edgier than the first book, but it's still packed with plenty of action and excitement that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat and holding your breath. Oh, and an ending which is so full of unexpected twists and turns that by the time you reach the last page you'll be rushing to pick up the third part of the trilogy!

PS Dog lovers will enjoy this just as much as cat lovers!
