If you like cats and Martial Arts, you'll love Varjak Paw by SF Said. Young Varjak, a purebread Mesopotamian Blue cat, lives with his feline family and elderly owner in a large mansion on the outskirts of a great city. Despite his family's closeness, Varjak never felt like he fit in. And he doesn't. One day a mysterious Gentleman and two deadly black cats arrive at the mansion and imprison his family. Varjak narrowly escapes to the city outside. Here, he begins having dreamlike visions of his great ancestor Jalal, who founded an ancient form of feline kung fu called The Way. Varjak is the rare cat Chosen to learn The Way. He must master the Seven Skills, and he must do it soon! Animals throughout the city are disappearing, and Varjak is the only one who can rescue them!
And don't miss the exciting sequel, Outlaw Varjak Paw. The notorious gang leader Sally Bones is invading neutral territories, bullying the cats who live there and causing all the city's cats to live in constant fear. Varjak, along with Holly, Tam, and Cludge, is the only one willing to stand up to Sally and fight for peace. But what if Sally is more experienced in The Way than Varjak?
Both are awesome books! --AJB
