Review: The Great Lab Escape by Perry Elisabeth Kirkpatrick



Release Date:
October 30, 2018

Synopsis from Goodreads:

What do you do when you discover you're the first cat to learn to read?
You run!

Before Mia was the remarkable detective cat, she was a test subject at Caput Laboratories. When she begins to notice words jumping off the page, she's determined not to spend the rest of her life in the lab.

Everything goes awry when her plan to intentionally fail her test backfires —badly. Can she make her escape with only her wits and her newfound reading skills? And will she make it in the big world outside the lab's walls?

My Review

The book is told from the kitty’s point of view.  Mia learns she can read, but she doesn’t want to stay cooped up in a lab for the rest of her life.  She comes up with a plan to escape but things don’t quite go her way.

It’s a race for Mia to find her forever home.

This is a cute prequel to The Kitten Files mystery series. I never heard of it before but got it as a freebie and I can’t resist a kitty book. It may still be free. The only thing that would have made it better were if it were longer.  It's very short, but there are still four more books in the series so I still have a chance to catch up on Mia’s antics.

  1. This book and the rest of the series sound good. I just this and will get the others as I read them.

  2. This sounds like quite the fun series. And I'm always happy to discover a new author.
