Messi and the Mystery Cat: Cat Race

When the Katsenbergs family speeds off to their summer holidays, quite a cat race is to be expected

The summer holidays are here. Messi and the cat family pack the car and drive off on a holiday trip. To the delight of everyone, a hitch-hiker joins the group: it’s the Mystery Cat, Messi’s mysterious friend.

The cats come across all sorts of travellers on their trip: the fox family’s American classic car has skidded into a swamp, the farmer’s trailer has thrown a somersault, builders and their van are entirely lost and a hot air balloonist would like company on his adventures. Messi, the Mystery Cat and the others try to help as best they can. And when the cats themselves land in trouble with their car, help from their new friends is much needed.

Reviews

  • Siru Päivinen, Yle Pohjois-Karjala

    “The book brings to mind Richard Scarry’s picture books bursting with happenings as well as the Viiru and Pesonen stories. Hayao Miyazaki’s Totoro has also clearly inspired the creator.”

  • Sininen keskitie blog

    “Ninka Reittu’s book is a tremendously handsome and fast-paced adventure book, and I wish this first-time author all good fortune! The book clearly lays the groundwork for continuing adventures, and my first grader and I await them eagerly. It was a real treat to read some fresh and different new children’s literature for a change that does not let the reader off easily.”
