Sinossi

Calico Cogg is a cat like no other. Rescued from the streets of Ticswyk by esteemed inventor Lionel Cogg, she has been fitted with implants to enhance her natural feline abilities. When Lionel is kidnapped, Cali must put her skills to the test to free him.

Dark schemes are in the works—a plague of tiny clockwork spiders are wreaking havoc on the city’s inhabitants. Only Cali, with help from her trusted mouse friend Emmit, can get to the bottom of it all. With a criminal mastermind planning a major heist, Cali must race against time to unravel his plot before he escapes with the city’s greatest treasure.

5.0 su 5 stelle Great Steampunk, Fun for Kids and Adults Alike! 22 aprile 2016
Di L. Evans - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
In this delightful steampunk, we meet Cali, a cat enhanced with inventions her human friend (not master, as in her own words, “Cats have no masters.”) Lionel Cogg gave her. All seems well, until Lionel is kidnapped by the sinister Jameson Morcroft, one of the leaders of the “guilds” (which are really no better than dressed up gangs) of the city of Ticswyk. Anxious about her human friend, Cali teams up with an unlikely ally, a mouse of all… ahem, people, named Emmit. Together the unlikely friends set out to save Lionel. Using their smarts, and Lionel’s wits, they’re able to rescue him and escape. But the threat of Jameson Morcroft and his cronies still looms large! Mechanical spiders, an invention of Morcroft, are running through the city, pickpocketing without humans noticing. Cali and Emmit, with the help of other animal friends, including Nellie the horse, track the movements of these sinister spiders, only to find out that simple pickpocketing is not the only reason why Morcroft made the spiders. He made them for something else. Something much worse. What is it, exactly? Well, let’s just say it’s connected to the book’s title somehow. But that’s all I’m giving away! If you want to know, you’ll have to read the book to find out!
If you enjoy exciting tales where the action doesn’t let up, you’ll enjoy this, especially if you’re a fan of steampunk, like I am. This was a very fun read, great for kids and adults alike! I highly recommend it!
4.0 su 5 stelle A well-written middle grade steampunk adventure 12 maggio 2016
Di Big B - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I think this is a great story for kids. Especially kids who like cats. The writing is clear and well edited. Scenery and characters are well described. The plot is simple but not boring. The deluge of backstory about the guilds in the first chapter or so got a little tedious. The information was necessary to understand what the protagonists were up against, but perhaps it could have been sprinkled in more subtly. Besides understanding human speech, It becomes apparent that the animals can read and write, so I wonder why they didn’t enlist the help of the humans in stopping the bad guy. The consensus seemed to be that the police wouldn’t believe them, but I’m certain the cat’s caretaker would have believed her. And he certainly would have helped. Other than that, the book was compelling enough to keep me reading when I should have been doing other things.
4.0 su 5 stelle An enjoyable read for anyone who likes steam punk--or crazy cats 29 aprile 2016

This is my second Steam Punk book and I think I'm becoming a fan of the genre! This one gets off to a bit of a slow start with background, but once it gets going it's non-stop action!
I loved the interaction of the main characters, Cali & Emmit, and suspect they will soon have quite a following of young fans.
Certainly worth a read for anyone who likes steam punk--or crazy cats.
Most enjoyable.

** I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR MY READING PLEASURE **

What a fantastic story!

It's not often that I come across a book told nearly totally in an animal's POV, but this one was and it really worked. Though omnipresent, with a few various POV, the story is primarily told through three characters – the calico cat, Cali; a mouse called Emmit; and Cali's owner, Lionel. This way we get to see all the goings on that are important to the story.

Honestly, there wasn't anything I didn't like about this story. And the only grammar/spelling notes I noticed and made, were when two words were accidentally switched for something else, which I'm sure is a very minor error made during the excitement of writing such a great action story. I completely disregarded these mistakes, when considering my rating, because out of a book that's 200+ pages, two small mistakes are totally natural. (Just for note, the mistakes were; meanly sum, instead of measly; expressed an entrance, instead of interest.)

Yes, there are talking animals. I found it quite exciting, as their actions and thoughts were very natural to their species. Mice acted like mice, cats like cats and horses like horses. Yet, there was an air of human intelligence about them that was fun to explore. It's sort of like crossing over Ratatouille (with mice instead of rats) and The Aristocats, while adding a Steampunk element. A lot of fun for kids and adults alike. (Especially since these are two of my favourite animated movies ever.)

As for the characters, I really loved Lionel and Florence. You could see that they were related, through little nuances, as well as how they interacted with each other. They weren't overly affectionate siblings, but naturally close and happy to spend time with each other and share news. Lionel is the eccentric tinker, inventing all sorts, while Florence is a strong, independent woman, who knows her own mind and it's locked into a world of social conventions. I really loved how she was shown, as many women of Steampunk are either caricatures of Victorian women or simpering maids, who need rescued. Florence is a great role model for young girls.

Without spoiling the plot, I do want to say that the whole spider idea was genius! Not only do humans rarely notice spiders, unless they make themselves known, but they're ingeniusly clever little beings, getting into all the nooks and crannies, without ever being noticed.

Overall, this was a beautifully presented (with nice chapter headings), cute steampunk story about an enhanced cat and her owner. It's about forming unlikely friendships – cat and mouse – protecting what's important to you (friendship and loyalty) as well as discovering you're much braver than you think.

While exploring lots of adventure, and never a dull moment, the story doesn't stuff you full of ridiculous or unbelievable events. Which, believe me, is saying something when two of the three main characters are a cat and a mouse!

Inspired!

Favourite Quotes

“Enhanced. A marvel of the ages. Superior to all other felines. That's how her creator, Lionel Cogg, put it. He named this special cat Calico Cogg. Cali for short. A masterpiece of engineering, a creation of pure beauty.”

““Well, Cali, I saw your master this afternoon,” the mouse began.
“He's my friend,” she corrected. “Cats have no masters.”
“Of course,” Emmit replied. “I was having a snack a few blocks away from the bakery,” he explained. “I heard a shout and ran to see what was happening. Sometimes humans shout when they've dropped food, so it was worth a look.”
Cali rolled her eyes. Mice, she thought with disdain.”

“Cali was surprised to discover that candy worked better than a pistol.”
5.0 su 5 stelle A Clockwork Cat and His Friend A Brave Mouse, save The Golden Owl 1 giugno 2016
Di Valerie Roberson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

WOW! This book was, oh so good! When you think of Clockwork or Steampunk, you think of huge flying machines or mechanical giant of some kind. But the author made this story so all ages could enjoy it. A cat that has clockwork is unusual and I love it!
Cali is just your ordinary rescued street cat, loved by her friend Lionel Clogg. He is a tinker with inventions. He enhanced Cali to be a better cat. By using small parts, she could run faster, jump higher and see better. Cali was very proud of her clockwork.
Cali and her mouse friend Emmit, yes mouse friend, take it upon themselves to save the Golden Owl from a very sinister wealthy man. They take on his machines to save it. Do they? How can a cat and mouse do that? Well you will just have to read it to find out.
I enjoyed this book so much and hope that Cali and Emmit have more adventures. I would love to see what they could get into next. I foresee a Wedding and Cali and Emmit have to save the day somehow. If you love cats, this book is for you! If you are new to Clockwork or Steampunk. this book is for you! Enjoy!!
