Claude D’Bonair and his cat friends are back for their third Flying Furballs adventure in Unmasked. Donovan Bixley’s Flying Furballs series is one of the best series for young readers around. The stories are packed with action, close shaves, puns to make you laugh-out-loud, brave cats and horrid dogs. They are perfect for newly independent readers because there are lots of Donovan’s wonderful illustrations throughout the story and they are just really fun to read.
Claude D’Bonair is the heroic, young pilot in the CATS Air Corps, who you follow on his adventures in to DOGZ territory. He flies all over Europe to try and foil the DOGZ plans and rescue fellow cats. In the latest book in the series, Unmasked, Claude and Manx, CATs’ head engineer, have to go on an undercover mission to Venice to recover some secret plans. With great escapes, explosions and marvelous inventions, Unmasked is another thrilling story in this fantastic series.
Flying Furballs is hugely popular in my library and I’m always trying to get new kids hooked. The series is especially great for 7-9 year olds and they would be fantastic stories to read aloud to a Year 3/4 class. I can’t wait to read more Flying Furballs adventures!
