Summary- Hiro and her sister Kimba thought that their ordeal with the cats in the mirror was over after they refused to help them take over the world (in book 1 of the series “Why Kimba Saved the World” cats from outer space try to recruit the kitty sisters in a plot to take over the world by talking to them through mirrors – see my review HERE). When the sisters’ human parents go on vacation, Hiro makes the mistake of talking to the cats in the mirror again, but this time it’s different. The space cats reveal the sisters are not just ordinary cats and they have a destiny to fulfill. Hiro loves her human family but she is curious about who she really is and Kimba is ready to go on an adventure. The sisters find themselves having to make some big decisions about who and what they really are.
What I Thought- Add this one to your summer reading list! In the second book of the Cats in the Mirror series, Ms. Dendler takes us back into the minds of our pet kitties. I bet a lot of people often think about what their pets are really thinking. Ms. Dendler brings the reader up to speed in this book, so you don’t have to read the first book to know what’s going on (but you should, because it’s a fun book). Vacation Hiro is a fun adventure about what two seemingly regular Earth cats really are. Who knew there is an advanced society of space cats?!? Ms. Dendler’s writing style is very kid-friendly and her story is great for kids of all ages. I think young advanced readers will especially enjoy the book. Vacation Hiro is a unique and imaginative story that gets the reader’s attention. I’m looking forward to reading what these kitty sisters do next!
