Basil the Bionic Cat

Happy Friday everyone! Today I have a long overdue book review. I won a copy of Basil The Bionic Cat by Cathrine Garnell back in September, but as you know, I haven’t been reading as much without my Lucy.

Lucy used to pose on my robe with the book, but now like Tiny Tim’s chair, it sits alone.


The book is for children aged 8-12, but I really enjoyed it so I think it should be for ages 8-adult. Basil is a cat that lives in a manor with Mr. And Mrs. Pilkington , their twin daughters and an Aunt. Mr. Pilkington is a bit of a mad scientist ( I envision Doc in Back to the Future) and Basil ends up stepping in the wrong thing leaking from the lab.

This book is full of suspense and mystery as the twins get kidnapped. Fortunately, Basil has developed some new powers from the substance he stepped in. As you know, I don’t like to give long reviews for fear of giving out too much information. I can assure you that this book won’t disappoint. I think it would be a great gift this holiday season for kids and cat loving adults.

Basil has his own blog: Β 

You can purchase the book in the U.S. at Amazon The Kindle version is only $2.99 ( free for Kindle Unlimited)

and at Amazon UK

See you for hopping tomorrow.
