Description from the amazon:
CatKid is convinced her house is haunted! She can hear something scritching and scratching above her bed. The only problem is that no one else can hear it.

None of the other kids in her class believe in ghosts. They all think CatKid is a fraidy cat. But she knows there's something going on in her house, and her cat curiosity makes her want to figure it all out. So CatKid hatches a plan. But will her scheme catch the ghosts, or land her in the doghouse?

I'm No Fraidy
Fishy Field Trip
Purrfect Princess
Three's a Crowd

Amusing quote:
You know you can't control you cat half around string, she says.

I guess you're right, I say. The trap is more important than playing with string.
- page 61, chapter 8

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): cookies
First note that this is a chapter book and geared for ages 4-6 (and young-at-heart).

I enjoyed this super cute sleuthing episode with CatKid.

Definitely a good one to read to your little ones. She's bound to tickle with her antics.
