Book Description

Roscoe is a somewhat surly, but lovable house cat. Like most cats, he spends a fair amount of his time sleeping in nooks and crannies in and about the house where he lives, with the family that cares for him. He wakes up long enough to eat and stretch out under the morning sun and occasionally rolls around in the dirt.

The family that cares for Roscoe, assumes that this is the sum of Roscoe's life.....but they are wrong. When the cover of darkness falls, Roscoe becomes a Secret Agent, and there is no telling what what adventure might await.

The Amazing, Super Secret, Undercover Life of Roscoe the Cat, begins the series, when Roscoe notices a small hole developing in the bag of cat food which sits upon the washing machine. The question is, "How did it get there, and who is behind it?" One thing is for sure.....Roscoe will put his Secret Agent skills to work and find out. There may be some valuable life lessons learned in the process.

Dr. Kelley is a practicing physician in Austin, Texas, and is the author of 'The Fitness Response,' 'The Fitness Response 'Diet' for Women, as well as 'The 3 Hour Appetite' series. 'The Amazing, Super Secret, Undercover Life of Roscoe the Cat' is Dr. Kelley's first book written for children.

"My goal in writing this book, has been to write a fun and enjoyable, book that both preschool and elementary school age kids could read, and also present a valuable lesson about how to treat others."

"Roscoe is indeed, our cat and he is truly a sweet and interesting animal. He is part of our family. This book is his platform, to grow and be more than just a cat. I think he would be pleased."

4.0 out of 5 stars Super-Sleuth Roscoe February 21, 2013
By Rosette
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A nice story for children who as they read, will have fun trying to discover just who the culprit is that Roscoe is trying to catch. They will learn about compassion and tolerance through Roscoe's adventure, as he shows compassion and discovers that he and the culprit are not so different after all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting for the next Roscoe adventure March 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a really cute kids book. I'd say 8 and under would be a target audience. Lots of pictures of cats, mainly Roscoe. Has a good moral to it concerning kindness and how we are more alike than different. A good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars THIS CAT IS NO RAT November 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This short adventure is the story of a cat who leads a double life as a secret agent. At the beginning of the tale the reader meets Roscoe and his sibling, Olive who have been rescued from a shelter. They have some difficulty adjusting to life with the resident house cat, Cayenne, but soon all become friends. Roscoe finds the life of a house cat very comfortable. Still, Roscoe is a very strange cat in one respect; at night he becomes a secret agent prowling the area to solve whatever mischief is afoot.

One night Roscoe notices a small tear in the cat food bag in the laundry room. He leaves his fellow cats to guard his warm bed spot and investigates. He thinks he knows the culprit but does not confront him. The mystery continues for a few nights until Roscoe discovers that a rat has been stealing the food. At first he is determined to kill him, but after looking the rat in the eye, he changes his mind. Roscoe discovers that the rat was cold and hungry so he broke in to find shelter and survival. Remembering his earlier fate, Roscoe persuades all the cats in the household to befriend him.

Okay, this does sound a bit ridiculous that a cat who is the natural enemy of the rat would suddenly let him off the hook. However, the book does teach children that we can have empathy for those we have been taught are our enemy and all of us have the same basic needs and wants for survival. This book is filled with adorable photographs that children and adults will enjoy. Young children will delight in the book as a read aloud. It also makes a good beginning reader for children in the early elementary grades.

The author is a medical doctor who is also a fitness expert. He has written books on health and the Christian faith. Kelley now has expanded his writing interests to include children’s books. If you and your family love cats, this book might be a good choice.
