Why Kimba Saved The World Cats in the Mirror #1How can a young cat pick between everything she has ever wanted and everyone she has ever loved Kimba lives the care free life of a much loved. Why Kimba Saved the World is a sweet story with a host of feline characters and personalities that cat lovers are sure to identify with The story stars two delightful kittens Kimba and her sister Hiro and follows their adventures as they are first abandoned then rescued and lovingly raised by a human family very obviously the author her husband and their assortment of pets reincarnated in the storyThe kittens soon learn that cats are actually not from Earth at all and that they were born for a greater destiny as part of an undercover feline agency intent on taking over the world How Kimba wrestles with her loyalties to her loving human family versus that of her own species forms the central conflict of the story I really enjoyed the author's imaginative touches such as cats communicating through mirrors and the way she interprets common cat behaviour as part of their plans for invasion LOVE the idea of leaving fur on humans as tags to monitor their movements As an owner of a cat myself so much of their behaviour is very well observedI have to confess that at times I felt a bit confused as the book sometimes read like a fictional story and sometimes like a journal of cute pet anecdotes from the author's personal life I think it might have been better if it was one or the other The premise for Kimba's story of cats being aliens trying to take over the world was so intriguing and fun that I would have liked to have just focused on that rather than being pulled out of Kimba's world by the parts of the story which felt like a personal journal of events with sentimental value I especially found this with the photos inserted throughout such as the photographs of the author's real life kittens with her husband who inspired the characters in the story I didn't really like this intrusion of the author's real life into the story but this might just be me as I like to picture characters in a fictional story in my own head rather than have images fed to me one reason why I often dislike film TV adaptations of booksOverall I think kids and cat lovers of any age would enjoy this cute `tail' about a cat with the fate of the world in her pawsDisclaimer I was offered the chance to review Why Kimba Saved the World as part of a book swap when I met the author on Goodreads and we agreed to read each others' books and provide honest reviews
