I would recommend this book to kids nine and up. Even if your little one isn’t a strong reader just yet this would be the perfect book to use as a read-aloud. Not only that but the illustrations and maps are sure to keep their interest. I am looking forward to reading the second book myself!
The story is launched from an ordinary school bus ride on a rainy day. When the rain suddenly stops, “glittering,” “shimmering” colors form on the asphalt. Suddenly, a prick of blue light darts down and the bus comes to a blue wall of light. The children black out momentarily and awaken in a new, strange place. It’s a place with where clouds have silver and gold linings. It’s place of a strange mist that induces freezing, unusual candy tasting fruit, talking fish, an ever-changing trail, and a host of different characters including a talking monkey. The kids embark on a journey to the Silver City. What makes it even more curious is that each child now possess a magical gift and power. It is a new land of adventure that isn’t without suspense. Giant birds attack with the goal of bringing the kids to their masters. The story races to a thrilling climax featuring the title character, the silver cat. The final confrontation with the silver cat and his rescue of Bobby, one of the kids, is exciting and packed with surprises.
Carroll’s story is entertaining and lends itself easily into a sequel. The themes of friendship, overcoming adversity and never quitting emerge. The book opens with some great artwork; a few maps and descriptions of the kids. Linda Huang and Jackie Carroll do a great job capturing the characters Carroll paints throughout the book. The book is a bit longer than most for kids, but it reads quickly. If you’re a fan of quality fantasy literature, you’ll need to read Kingdom of the Silver Cat.
