PART 1. QUEST FOR FREEDOM. 1. Rascal was sitting on the windowsill watching the rain. His eyes lazily followed the drops as they fell from the gray sky. The soft cat song he was humming was the only sound in the quiet attic

PART 1. The soft cat song he was humming was the only sound in the quiet attic. There wasn’t much light either. Two small windows facing the north side barely chased away the darkness, and long shadows cast odd shapes on the bare wooden walls. Rascal peered through the rain soaked window at the mountains that loomed in the distance, half hidden in thick clouds.

With these books Rascal and his friends will take you on amazing adventures. Not Now. CommunitySee All.

This second in the "Rascal" series combines the strengths and weaknesses of the first book, though the editing is improving. (The first book was published in Poland; the second in the U.S.) Still, another go at the galley proofs would have been helpful - there are many times the text breaks abruptly into white space and continues on the next line, or the word usage is just plain awkward. (Example: Rascal declares, "We're enjoying learning about cats from and another country and this is our great, amazing, interesting alive book!")

For many readers this will not be a problem. However, if like me you've grown up loving the classic children's stories and continue to read them as an adult, you may wish that the author's imagination, warm heart and desire to teach children about other lands and customs were combined with just a bit more literary style. In many ways, this series is like the popular "Magic Treehouse" series, except that instead of a brother and sister being transported to different places in history, we have a group of seven cats. Sometimes they act like cats, and sometimes (almost disconcertingly), they act like people, using tools and speaking directly with humans. Sometimes their adventures are grounded in reality; other times they are more like fairy tales. After one adventure in ancient Egypt, the cats find themselves in a very unrealistic medieval Europe, which combines a talking dragon with (all too real) references to the Black Death and a truly terrifying encounter with thousands of hungry rats. In the third adventure, a kind of "Home Alone" with cats, they defend their home against burglers - aided by nine more cats!

Although the cats are lightly sketched as individual personalities, I'd have preferred fewer cats and more emotional investment in each. Not only are there a few too many cats to keep track of, but other animals often come and go within a page or two, giving us no chance to know them except as a kind of encyclopedia definition. A sample: "Oryx, a large antelope with a head marked with black triangular patches and broad black stripes extending from the base of long, spear-like horns over the eyes to the cheeks, looked at them and asked, 'Where are you going with those two bad gods?'" Whew! Reading this book, a child will learn a great deal about animal species and ancient customs (parents may want to keep a dictionary and an encyclopedia handy), but at times it's almost too much.

On the plus side (and it's a big plus), I loved the emphasis on cooperation, on non-violence, on faith in overcoming obstacles, on the uses of positive energy, and especially on the power of the purr! The sequence where the cats defeat the rats surrounding them is truly inspirational. As one wise cat says, "Force leads to destruction. It's guilty and feeds off its own avarice.... Power, on the other paw, is used in the service of goodness, to help others and to do what's right." In balance, these are engaging cat tales where the most important lessons are probably not what can be learned in a dictionary, but in the heart.

I enjoyed the coming of age stories in book one, but I was a little at a loss to know how book two could build on those tales.

Book two turned out to take off in totally unexpected directions: The cats leave Catanada for time-space adventures in ancient Egypt and the Middle Ages. Upon returning home, they have a Home Alone adventure with some burglars that's most entertaining.

The two historical tales swish on your attention like a cat's tail through constant action and learning. I was astonished to see how much educational information the author was able to impart without being preachy or talking down to young readers. Ancient Egypt looks into the veneration of cats, unusual animals and insects, the problems with rodents around the Pharaoh's granaries and superstitious beliefs about cats. The Medieval tale addresses the Black Death, politics at court and other superstitious beliefs while adding its own unusual animal.

The final story about the "cat-foiled burglars" is pure humor. If my daughter had read this book at age 8, the house would have been filled with gales of laughter.

The only drawback to this delightful book is that there's something wrong with the typesetting. Sentences truncate mid-line and start up again on the next line. It's annoying, but if you think of it as a joke . . . it'll add to your enjoyment.

Very nice!

This book is great. I liked it more than the Book 1 Why Some Cats are Rascals, Book 1. It is made of three parts. In first part the cats have a lot of adventures in Sahara desert. Very interesting. It kept me reading until I finished it. I liked most the third part of the book. The part is titled Cats Alone. It is sooooo funny! The owners leave the cats alone at home. The thieves come to rob the house and the cats are fighting with them. It is like the movie Home Alone, except that it is more funny. I loved it.

I hope to get Book 3 for Christmas

I have finally finished Book Two! It was amazing! A story where I learned from it and still enjoyed reading, unlike a text book! =] but here it is!I love the adventures Rascal and his gang gets into! First they are "looking for freedom", then they are out in the Enchanted Forest! Now, as they are still in the Forest, the great Prehistoric Cat takes them through the Doors of the Ages. And they visit Ancient Egypt and Medieval Europe! Wow! Some adventures! I wish I could be Rascal and his gang!

I can't wait for the next book from this author.

After reading "Why Some Cats are Rascals" Book1, it is almost impossible for one not to fall in love with the characters.

Yes I love this series. Hoping for a book3 and more.

That's awesome! Rascal is great :))
