    I am nearly 50 years old, but I still appreciated the punny humor of this book.

    It's all in the title, exactly what it sounds like and more. There has been a war between the Feline Empire and Robot Federation for millennia. Both forces learn that a chip on planet Earth has been invented that has the power to either prolong a cat's nine lives, or give robots the power of an eternal battery. This adventure-packed novel will have you laughing at the cat traits we all know so well, as well as pondering how human robots are capable of being. I'm purr-fectly pleased and eager for

    is a delightful and entertaining read. It's the first book in a new children's book series by Margaret Stohl and Lewis Peterson.

    The story centers around two galactic empires that consist of seemingly polar opposites -- the Robots, or "Binars," obsessed with order and rules, and the Cats, for whom rules are "generally meant to be followed--but only if you felt like it."

    is a delightful and entertaining read. It's the first book in a new children's book series by Margaret Stohl and Lewis Peterson.

    The story centers around two galactic empires that consist of seemingly polar opposites -- the Robots, or "Binars," obsessed with order and rules, and the Cats, for whom rules are "generally meant to be followed--but only if you felt like it."

    These civilizations' epic battle is now coming to Earth, where humans have invented a "Singularity Chip" that can enable cats to live past their nine lives or grant robots eternal battery life. Each side is determined that the chip must not fall into the enemy's paws -- or grasping appendages.

    As the winner of a #GoodreadsGiveaway, I received an advanced reader's copy of this thoroughly engaging book. From start to finish, I found so much to enjoy and appreciate.

    To begin with, the book encourages readers to move beyond "binary" thinking, of believing that something has to be all of one thing or all of something else. Girl or Boy. Cat or Robot. Organized or Chaotic. However you delineate things that you believe to be complete opposites.

    In earlier comments, I mentioned the book incorporating Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics -- abbreviated in education communities as STEM (or, as I prefer it, STEAM, which also encompasses Arts). Well, robotics, coding, computer programming, are all integral to this story.

    But one other area where I feel that readers may benefit is in emotional literacy ... to an ability to identify your feelings. Two human twins, Min and Max, experience a range of emotions as they interact with two mischievous kittens and an older cat whose health is failing.

    My thanks to everyone involved in this book's creation for the chance to read this advance copy. This book would be a great addition to the children's collection in a library.

    Learned this morning in an email that I'd won a #GoodreadsGiveaway of 's

    . My initial impression of this book, when I enrolled in the giveaway, was that it combined my favorite animal, the cat, with an application of STEAM principles (That's Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. As I understand it, educators incorporate STEAM in education to prepare children to live and work in an increasingly technological society.) Well, my intention with any children's book giveaway that I won was to place the book, once I'd read it, into my school library. And for its emphasis on STEAM, plus seeming a really fun read, I thought this book would be an especially good fit. I'm looking forward to receiving this book and, most especially, to reading it.

    #FirstLine ~ Pounce de Leon, second in command and Major Meow-Domo of the great feline Empire, padded toward the entrance of the Grand Throne Room.

    Booknerd Braden's Review:

    I really liked this book. It was funny and I laughed lots of times. The story line was original and well thought out. My favorite character was Tipsy the robot. The Protos were also very interesting. Normally, I am not a cat fan, but this book put of fun spin on cats because it is about a galactic war between the Feline Empire

    Fun enough for middle-grade readers. Creative concept. This is one of those series that kids will check out frequently.

  • Nicole Wagner

    A really cute chapter book. I'd pick up the second one if it was already written.

  • Donna

    Fun story that has multiple view points, humor, potty jokes, and some STEAM concepts thrown in for good measure.

    This is the first is as series and I think it will appeal to many of my students.

    I hoped for a lot more from this book. The writing drove me crazy, and all the different perspectives were very hard to follow.
