FLYING FURBALLS  2016

Written and illustrated by Donovan Bixley
Softcover 
210 x 148mm (portrait), 112 pages 

 

Flying Furballs is a fully illustrated junior fiction series aimed at 6–10 year olds. It's pussycats in planes in Paris!

Our hero is Claude D’Bonair, a young pilot in the Cat Air Corp, keen to prove his worth to the older pilots and live up to the memory of his father. Will cats and dogs ever live in harmony again? And will Claude survive with his nine lives intact? With cat tricks and catastrophe, Dogfight is the first in an explosive new series that will have young readers wanting to read beyond the very last page. Full of the romance of Paris at the dawn of aviation, and fully illustrated on every page, you'll be barking mad if you don't get your paws on Flying Furballs.

 

REVIEW from American School Library Journal

“Plenty of jokes balance the action-packed story line, while black-and-white cartoon art graces almost every page. Readers will enjoy delving into the many maps, charts, and pun-filled humor. This new series starter will appeal to both newly independent readers and slightly older reluctant readers looking for something  unique. VERDICT Fans of “Geronimo Stilton” will find a winner here. Recommended for most chapter book collections.” – Kathy Kirchoefer, Henderson County Public Library, NC
