My, my! I started this adorable adventure tonite, thinking I'd read a quick chapter before bed. Well, that didn't happen; I read it straight through, & am now going to have to yawn my way through my day tomorrow because I stayed up too late reading!! *grins* I absolutely LOVED it, start to finish!!
Midnight the Rescue Panther is a much-loved presence on his Facebook page, and many of us follow his daily antics with delight. He has a large 4-legged family (and a great mama and dad), plus his numerous friends, and several members of the beloved Facebook "cast" of characters appear within the pages of Midnight's book. So, for those of us who follow Midnight already on FB, there is the delight of seeing roles filled in the pages of this book by those we already feel we "know".
But, one does NOT have to already be acquainted with the cast of characters which appear, in order to delight in this novella. The age-old theme of good-against-evil always works, especially when it's done to a backdrop of little lessons about real loyalty and true friendship. (And wee young Rosie-Bear even lets us know that kissing might be okay, too!)
A lovely little book of fiction, but populated by characters you might very well "know" already from Facebook; part detective story, part mystery, part fairy tale, and just a smidgeon of magic! You could read this book with your little children, with no fear of bad language or scary themes. But I read it for *ME*, and loved it! I only wish I'd waited till tomorrow to start reading it, since I absolutely could NOT stop once I opened it tonite! Applause, Midnight the Rescue Panther! I will be first in line to get the next book in this series, because there just MUST be another - there MUST!
