Case of the Missing Monet

Case of the Missing Monet

Take a field trip into the world of art theft.

A field trip to the local art museum with Mittens's rambunctious nieces takes an unexpected turn when a priceless Monet painting is stolen! With their reputations on the line, the museum leadership desperately turns to Mittens and Alex for help. 

Will the detectives see past the deception around them to discern friend from foe? Could this be another crime organized by the mysterious Ruffled Feathers?

Most importantly, can the museum survive the antics of the crazy Kastle kittens?

Art Theft Comes to Bowwow!

Mittens takes every opportunity to further the education of her beloved (but crazy) nieces. A field trip to the art museum seems like a perfect outing.

But what she envisions as a quiet afternoon of artistic enlightenment is transformed…into a chaotic whirlwind of clues, false identifies, and four over-eager junior detectives. She and Alex must find the daring art thief if they’re going to keep their dear friend, Mayor Nut, from some seriously bad press.

Things get complicated when Mittens’s sworn reporter enemy and a snooty government agent both arrive to make her life as difficult as possible. And that’s without counting Tammy’s smuggled lock pick kit or Riley’s wheeled sneakers!

It will take all of Mittens’s concentration–not to mention patience–to keep her crew on track. Can they crack this case before the criminal gets away with the goods forever?

Searching for truth, justice…and cookies!

This is the second entry in Collar Cases, a Christian mystery chapter book series for kids ages 7-12. Boys and girls alike will laugh at the high-energy hijinks of hyper-focused Mittens and hyper-hungry Alex as they solve crimes and learn lessons about character in their small town.

Each book has a theme Bible verse and contains a short family devotional in the back for further discussion. This book’s theme verse is Matthew 6:19-21. The devotional was written by homeschool speaker Katie J. Trent, author of Dishing Up Devotions: 36 Faith-Building Activities for Homeschooling Families.
