This book is mystery. The main characters are Dawn, Jason and Powder Puff. Powder Puff, the cat, gets lost. The cat jumps out of Dawn's arms and into a car. Jason and Dawn go looking for the cat. They collect clues to help find the cat but I can't tell you the rest. Will the cat ever be found? You will have to read to find out.

There are many reasons I enjoyed this book. I thought this book was interesting. It was interesting because Dawn's friends didn't care about Powder Puff and he was the main character. I like the character Powder Puff because he reminds me of my cousin's cat. She ran away just like Powder Puff. Also when I was reading this book each time they talked about how hot it was outside, it made me wish it was hot because it was freezing when I read the book. This book has great pictures. The pictures help me visualize what is happening in the story.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes cats because this book is mainly about a cat. People that love cats will keep reading this book to find out what will happen to the cat by the end of the story. I also think people who like mysteries will enjoy this book because you don't know what will happen next in the story. This is very suspenseful.
