Kitten sisters Mayra and Rosie Wormwood have left Lake Falls Animal Shelter and now live in their forever home with Mom and Dad and fellow felines Lucky and Princess. It doesn’t take long however, for strange things to happen at their new home. Mayra and Rosie rally their animal companions to uncover the identity of the nighttime creature that has invaded their happy home and to figure out what is beyond the cliff’s edge.
Having read the first book in The Wormwood Mysteries series, Secret of Lake Falls, I was eager to read the second book. Palmucci’s trademark style of featuring rescue animals in her stories is such a great way to celebrate our furry friends who have led shelter lives and to subtly encourage adoption of rescues.
In Beyond the Cliff’s Edge, middle grade readers are treated to another mystery filled with adorable, well-defined characters with unique personalities. They get a chance to see Mayra and Rosie, now adopted, find a special place to call home.
I enjoyed how the author worked a variety of different animals into this story and how she created such a fun plot for this one.
If your middle grade readers enjoy mysteries or stories with animal characters, this series is a great choice.
