This is a picture book about William the cat. He solves mysteries. He’s a black and white cat with green eyes and a red notebook. He reminds me of Pepper from another book I reviewed called Pepper and Poe. But William is different because he’s a detective. He wants to find the famous painting Mona Cheesa. My mom says we call it the Mona Lisa. William finds clues to get the painting back. He follows a strange person, finds a red strand of yarn and finds a hole in the museum. He calls his friends to help solve the case. In the end, William finds what he is looking for. I like this book because it’s about a cat detective. It’s so funny to me. The illustrations are colorful. It takes place in an art museum. I want to be an artist. I feel happy when I see the art work. I give this book five stars. I think any kid my age would like it.
