Capitol Cat & Watch Dog Outwit the Supreme Court is a fanciful adventure with educational lessons woven in. Judge Janice Law's wit and wisdom is evident in the characters' wanderings.
Retired Texas criminal court judge, author, and founder of American Women Writers National Museum in Washington,D.C., Janice Law has created the second whimsical novel for children, designed to introduce them to our government and how it works with the help of two delightful characters, Watch Dog and Capitol Cat. The two helped unite twin Lady Freedoms in the first book of this series. She has also written an historical fiction thriller, also set in Washington, D.C. "Wicked Good Secrets". She's currently about to publish a non-fiction book about the wife former governor George Wallace. In this children’s book, the governmental employees, a dog and cat, illustrated Jason Eckhardt, elicit the assistance of Nino, the Supreme Cat, as well as Justice John Marshall, Fourth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, whose statue has inhaled the Night Magic that exists in the Capitol building enabling statutes of former presidents and others two given by each state, to come to life at night and hold Nighttime Congress where the ‘real’ Congress meets. The Joint Nighttime Congress is dealing with the “real” Congress’ decision to move some of these statues thorough the Smithsonian’s buildings. The only group that can stop this move is the Supreme Court, which hears 80 cases from the hundreds submitted for them to consider each year. How the team of Watch Dog, two extraordinary felines, with the help of a former chief justice have the members of the court to review the case is very clever. After hearing the case and waiting for its decision,will enlighten children and adults on what the Supreme Court does and how it functions.
