Vickie Johnstone, whom most of us know as a poet of promise, has branched out into the world of children's literature and if her inaugural book is any indication of what lies ahead, she proves that she has what it takes to create stories that not only capture the minds of youngsters but also the glued attention of the adult readers as well. She understands well that adventure and mystery and fantasy are the ingredients that hold a youngster's attention, but at the same time she appreciates the fact that without the use of humor and a solid bit of 'connect' to real life that some children might have bad dreams if this were a bedtime story.

Amy and James are two young children who live comfortably in a home with parents: security is assured. They happen to 'own' a chubby cat they named Kiwi and one night, with parents asleep, curiosity gets the better of them as they observe Kiwi outside staring at the moon. Wondering what Kiwi does for snacks and breakfast they follow their nocturnal cat only to discover that Kiwi talks, can transform herself in a purple mist to become invisible, and furthermore Kiwi instructs Amy and James to imagine they are cats and poof! the transformation occurs! Now the newly named Ames and Jimster enter Cat World where all manner of living conditions mimic human cities, with Meow Cafés, Meow Markets, and even a police station where the three adventurers meet Inspector Furrball who shares with them a Cat Crime in progress: Catnappings have been occurring every Monday and Furrball assigns Cat Squaddie member Paws to assist the trio in resolving the mystery of the missing five catizens.

This book is full of fun, mischievous, shenanigans. I loved entering into this magical fictional world of cats and finding out what they might just get up to when us mere humans' backs are turned. Vickie's story is so believable as the detail to surroundings, habits of a cat and the quirky names, such as: Inspector Furrball, Paws, Miss Kitty, Mr Katz, Mr J. Catskins, Detective Siam, Mr Claws and Madame Purrfect are brilliantly thought out which adds just the right amount of chuckle factor to keep us greatly entertained.
Other great names within the book such as Catizens (Cat Citizens), The Morning Meow (Their daily newspaper) and The Cat Squaddies just makes the story so authentic, that for a moment you actually quite imagine there really could be a place called Cat City in a parallel world.
Kiwi is Amy and James black and white fluffy pet. One night they decide to follow her to see just what she gets up to on her nightly outings. They were extremely surprised, not only to find out that Kiwi can actually talk to them, but she could change them both into kittens and whisked them away off to Cat City for an adventure.
Amy and James (now known as Ames and Jimster) help Kiwi and the Cat police unravel the mystery behind the missing Catizens that have been disappearing for a little while now.
A clever and exciting plot line, that makes you wanting to go out and get the next book in the series immediately after you have finished this book.
Well done Vickie, wonderful story.

Kiwi in Cat City is a delightful tale filled with mystery and suspense. Vickie Johnstone has a wonderful imagination and has created a magical world where cats run their own world outside of human intervention. The story begins on one dark night when Amy and James decide to follow their cat named Kiwi. Surprisingly Kiwi speaks to both children about following her and magically turns them both into cats. This makes the story much more exciting as now Amy and James can follow Kiwi into Cat City. They then endeavor to solve the mystery of the disappearing cats. As the story unfolds there are many surprising details and lots of adventure and action. This story will be enjoyed by anyone of any age that loves cats. I found to be an exciting read and can recommend it to you.

This is a lovely story about 2 children who decide to follow their cat one night and 'see what she has for breakfast'. They end up following her to 'Cat City' and the book is then about their adventures there. To say any more would be to give away spoilers and that's not what this review is about!

This author has a fantastic imagination and although this was essentially a children's book, I found myself thoroughly enjoying it. The story was told in an easy to read way and was a lovely subject. Who hasn't wondered where their cat goes all night? I would love to read more from this author as she is quite simply amazing!

I really enjoyed this adorable children's tale about two young children called Amy and James and their cat named Kiwi. The fun begins when the two children decide to follow Kiwi one night and then find themselves entering 'Cat World'. Suddenly they are turned into kittens and now join Kiwi on some great adventures. I found it highly entertaining, amusing and really admired the rich imagination of this author.

A fun and adventurous read for children and adults alike, especially cat lovers.
