Spy Catby Peg Kehret
Alex's little brother, Benjie, worries that the burglars will
Alex and his friend Rocky are upset by the recent burglaries in their housing development. Pete, Alex's cat-who can understand perfect English but cannot speak-awakens Alex to see a suspicious vehicle leave the house next door. The new neighbors discover that they, too, have been burglarized.
Alex's little brother, Benjie, worries that the burglars will return to kidnap Pete. His fears come true when he discovers burglars at his house and Pete in the thieves' van. Benjie confronts the thugs, who throw Pete out but kidnap Benjie. Benjie must use his wits to escape, while Pete bravely ignores his own injuries to help Alex save his brother.
Told partly in Pete's voice, Spy Cat is a page-turning adventure about the importance of family and friends.
About the Author:

Meet the Author
Peg Kehret was born in Wisconsin, grew up in Minnesota, spent fourteen years in California, and now lives with her husband in Washington State. They have two grown children, four grandchildren, one dog, and one cat.
Peg's novels for children are regularly recommended by the American Library Association, the International Reading Association, and the Children's Book Council. She has won many state "young reader" or "children's choice" awards. Peg's characters are ordinary kids who find themselves in exciting situations and who use their wits to solve their problems. There is usually humor as well as suspense in her books. A long-time volunteer at The Humane Society, she often uses animals in her stories.
Before she began writing books for children, Peg published plays, short stories, articles, and two books for adults. She is a frequent speaker at conferences for librarians and teachers.
At the age of twelve, Peg had polio and was paralyzed from the neck down. Because she can remember that experience and her year of recovery so vividly, she finds it easy to write in the viewpoint of a twelve or thirteen year old. Most of her main characters are that age. Her autobiography, Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio, won the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators, and the PEN Center USA West Award for Children's Literature.
When she is not writing, Peg likes to watch baseball, bake cookies, and pump her old player piano.
