Serendipity Mystery: Diary of a Snoopy Cat (Inca Cat Detective Series Book 7) was written by R.F Kristi whom resides in France and enjoys travelling the world, holding a Doctorate in Economic Development with an incentive to save animals. Additionally, she speaks English and French fluently and is a past member of the United Nations Children’s Funds.

Serendipity Mystery: Diary of a Snoopy Cat (Inca Cat Detective Series Book 7), edited by Tim Aucoin and Illustrated by Jorge Valle, has an eye-catching, vastly coloured cover with table of contents that is user-friendly providing easy navigation for young minds. The Siberian Kitty talks about her Family Tree, where Inca introduces her Human Mom and Aunt Florence alongside her brother Fromage, Siamese Sister Cara and Charlotte their Hamster. The reader also gets acquainted with Inca’s Detective Team right after the family introduction. Then finally, Inca shares her Journal entries surrounding a missing valuable sword from a museum in Sri Lanka.

Inca’s whiskered family members alongside Monk (Blue Russian Cat), the dog Terrence and Polo, a Pekinese Puppy makes up her Detective Agency. There is a lot to love and appreciate about this book. To say the least I think that allowing the reader to become familiarized with the characters before following Inca’s Team to solve the mystery, is convenient in the event that this volume happens to be read first. Also the fact that it is written from a Cat’s Point of View will without a doubt engage young minds even more especially those who love cats in particular.

Children generally find human-like animals more relatable. Some real animals, primarily drawn animals frequently possess child-like features consisting of a big head, big eyes, short arms and legs. Hence even adult animals appear to be kids.Children are infatuated with "what ifs". It's how they explore what they and the world are capable of. What if I was a baby kitty growing up in a family? What if I was an elephant? What if I was a Detective Dog? Animal traits also are granted further credible aptitude.

While Inca’s family recreated on a beach in Sri Lanka, a sword goes missing from a museum and Inca’s team solved the mystery with help from new friends, an elephant and a turtle. Additionally I liked that the book wasn’t too concentrated on the missing sword but that they also had secondary adventures.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars as I found no errors and the excitement experienced by Inca and her team throughout the mystery was highly contagious. I would recommend this book for young readers ages 7-10 rather than up to 12.
