BlueInk ReviewsThis is a genre in which it is all too easy to stray into the cloyingly cute, but Budd's adept pacing and the cleverness of the cat's monologue keep this novel on track. Some of the human characters are drawn with a heavy hand, but this is acceptable when, as is the case here, the intent to make them caricatures is clear.
Budd's book has a lot to live up to in a field where lively and well-loved characters abound. The good news for fans of feline sleuths is that Inspector Paws and the Wonders of Europe holds it own and then some in the cat caper tradition.
Highly recommended for fans of the Midnight Louie series by Carole Nelson Douglas.
