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.

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.

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.

I liked the pictures. But this book tampers with the natural order of life. Cats and rats CAN'T be "pals". It's just unnatural. Cats EAT rodents, and don't give heck what the story is. Rats are just EVIL. They wouldn't dine with a cat anyway. Rats are just toooo dang smart.

This little book is just great for young readers. The story is interesting and has a lot of cute photos. Even smaller children will like this story. One can't help but feel connected to Roscoe and cheer him on in his mission.

I enjoyed Roscoe's adventure as he discovers who is stealing his family's cat food. The photographs are endearing. I wanted to pet and cuddle all the cats. Roscoe is an intelligent detective and I am not surprised by this because I live with four super intelligent cats myself. I hope there will be many more Roscoe stories.

I love the way Roscoe's liefe is humanized. That's often the way I think my own cat thinks; secret motivations under a penetrating gaze or just a loud purr. Too bad it's so short. I would have liked a longer story.

This was a very cute children's book. It would be fun for a parent or grandparent to read to a child or an easy read for a child. Anyway, don't you always wonder what those cats are doing at night and what they are thinking?? ;-)

I would recommend this for anyone big or small.
