The sixth in a high-flying, action-packed WWII-esque series finds our hero in Russia

Flying Furballs, a hilarious action-packed adventure series, captures the romance and excitement of the era at the dawn of aviation—set in a world of cats versus dogs. Put simply, Flying Furballs is pussycats, planes, and Paris. Our hero is Claude D'Bonair, a young pilot in the cat air corp, keen to prove his worth to the older pilots and live up to the memory of his father. Will cats and dogs ever live in harmony again? Will Claude survive with his nine lives intact? In Breakout, Claude finds himself in Russia working with an old enemy to save important CAT allies.


"Readers will enjoy delving into the many maps, charts, and pun-filled humor." —School Library Journal
