Kids, and adults too, will enjoy reading the adventures of the cat Inca who is convinced, as the other cats and dogs, that they are the masters and they help humans who frequently need their help. R. Kristi of Paris, France, has done a marvelous, indeed hilarious job, in the as of now two Inca adventures where she does detective work and helps solve problems for humans.
There are two main problems that animals and people need to face in this book. The first is that a man is missing in the Himalayas. Humans leave England, where Inca and her family live and take care of the human Missy, and go to the Himalayas to see if they can find him. They take along a dog, a friend of Inca, who gives the humans some help.
The second adventure, where Inca is involved, concerns the death of a man who had signed a deed giving another man, Ned, his house, but the deed is now missing. Inca feels certain that another man, a relative of the dead man, is hiding the deed so that he can inherit the house. Inca decides to help Ned by finding the deed. He is persuaded to do so because she is generally kind, and because she is friends with the dog who lives in the house, Terrance. If the other man gets the house, Ned would have to leave the house and Terrance would have to stay in the house, and he would loose Ned.
There are some side issues which are fun to read, such as how the cats deal with Boss, a very vicious dog.

Christmas Cats: Inca book series, volume two is an adorable short story through the eyes of the curious and beautiful cat Inca. Inca, two other cats, and their hamster friend Charlotte live with their fun owner Missy. Missy owns a cheese shop which the cats adore. The book is filled with mystery and problem solving. One of Missy's neighbors go on an adventure (of course with their dog detective) to find a missing man in the himalayans. While they are away there is trouble occurring at a different neighbors house. When the streets bully dog Boss comes to Missy's and Inca's home in search of help for his master Ned, who is being forced to move out of his deceased family members home by his grumpy and not friendly cousin! Ned he cannot locate the documents proving the home was left to him and has no idea what to do! Inca does it once again and is a hero, using her creative tools to sneak into the room of Neds cousin to look for the document. In return Boss agrees to forever be kind to all cats and Charlotte. Her friends name their detective group after her and when their neighbors bring the missing man home everything is well again!
The book was easy to read. It took me about an hour. Seeing thing through a pets eyes was new and fun, and it was so interesting hearing a cat describe other animals and humans as well. There are little animated illustrations which were so cute and made following the story and knowing the animals easy and fun. This book would be great for kids or even parents to read to younger kids. It was a very cute story and I enjoyed reading it. The book is the second in the series, I have not read the first but you don't need to, to follow this book. However now I am going to read the first one! This book is a great choice
Cats Inca, Cara, and Fromage are back, along with their friends of the cat, dog, hamster, and human varieties. The neighborhood bully, Boss the dog, asks for their help, and in return makes a hard-to-keep promise to be nice to cats. Boss's human is about to be evicted from his house, all because the will leaving it to him is missing. Inca's newly formed detective agency is in business and intends to see justice done. This book is as charming and as much fun as the first in the series, The Cats Who Crossed Over from Paris. And everybody gets to see Aunt Florence in person when she comes from France to visit for Christmas.
