Goodreads: A mysterious thief is stealing from the Lee family household and bakery and it’s up to little puppy Tako to catch the culprit. Tako succeeds in exposing Allie, a feisty cat, but when she gets thrown out of the house Tako begins to have second thoughts about the consequences of his actions. Tako may be the only one who can uncover the truth, but to do so he will have to fight the vicious river rats and learn there may be more to the mischievous cat than what meets the eye.
Ope’s Opinion: It was fun to read this to Emma. At first she did not realize the cat was the one taking things, then she did not realize what the cat was doing with the things. It was fun to watch her realize what was going on.
Emma’s Opinion: Emma worried about where the cat was when it wasn’t staying at the house with Tako. Emma has a big heart and doesn’t want anyone hurt. She did give this one her five finger seal of approval!
