It is the story of a cat from the planet Gatos (gato is the Spanish word for cat) who meets alien cats and tries to figure out who or what they are. Their adventure leads them to a “battle” with Silicon Valley Computers.
Ultimately, Libra goes back to Gatos but her adventure on Earth will never be forgotten, nor will the friendships she made.

The book is a twist of learning and play on words that children can understand and adults will enjoy. The sci-fi fan will love the language, information, and adventures in this story and the young reader will learn more about reading and language than they expected.

The book comes with a CD of music featuring Amanda Shelby. The 25 songs are fun to sing and listen to. And it is an added bonus that makes this book a real deal.

Before writing this review, I had my 5th grade son also read the book. He loved it. He enjoyed the play on words and the story line. He has since taken the book to school and has shared it with his friends. It is truly a book for all ages.
