About the Author

Mike Nicholson was the winner of the Kelpies Prize 2005 for new Scottish writing for children. A member of local writing group Broadside, he based Catscape, his first book, in his home neighbourhood of Comely Bank, Edinburgh. He has since published another novel for children, Grimm, and a Scottish picture book, Thistle Street.

Reviews

'A well-paced, entirely convincing mystery novel, full of suspense, wit and unexpected twists and turns. Beautifully written in a clear, accessible style with plenty of direct speech and detailed description, it is an excellent, gripping yarn for anyone over 9 years old.' -- School Librarian 'This delightful, whimsical story will appeal to children of all ages. It is well written without being condescending, and the plot is unusual and quite gripping.' -- Stockbridge & New Town Independent 'I thought the story was great. My favourite character was Jessie. I would definitely recommend it to my friends because it is such a good book. I would love to read another story about Jessie, Murdo and Fergus.' -- Annie, age 8, Peebleshire, Scotland 'A ripping yarn and beautifully plotted. A real boys-own adventure story.' -- Catherine Forde, author of Fat Boy Swim 'The story is a double mystery concerned digital watches going backgwards and missing cats in a setting with lots of local detail. What starts out to be a bit of fun sono develops in to a dangerous adventure. I really enjoyed the plot and would recommend it to younger readers.' -- Hannah, Broughton High School 'I really enjoyed this book. My favourite part was when Fergus was climbing up the wall, and was caught by the home-owner. I think I would probably enjoy another Mike Nicholson's books.' -- Rachael, Teen Titles 'I liked it because it was a mystery but it was also quite funny. I would recommend the book to anyone.' -- Emma, Teen Titles
