Tenth in the exciting adventures of Kitty. Girl by day. Cat by night. Ready for adventure!

The whole of Hallam City is talking about magician, Marella, and her performing poodle, Crystal. Their magic show is in town, but on opening night, mid-way through their vanishing act, Crystal disappears for real and Marella can't make her reappear. It's up to Kitty and her cat crew to leap into action and solve the mystery of the missing poodle.

Join Kitty and her cat crew on the rooftops for a series of enchanting adventures by the light of the moon. Here, Kitty will discover that being a superhero is about more than using her special abilities- she must learn to be courageous too.


“An amusing story of bravery and self-confidence . . . A sweet series opener, especially for the cat lovers in the chapter-book set.” — Kirkus Reviews on Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue
