If you enjoyed “Stick Cat-Tail of Two Kitties”, by Tom Watson then you would also enjoy “Stick Cat-Cats in the City”. In this book Eddie invites Stick Cat to her apartment, which is right next to Stick Cat’s apartment.

First Eddie shows Stick Cat the kitchen. Stick Cat is shocked to find that Eddie does not eat from a bowl that is full with food that his owner, Goose gets from a pouch, like Stick Cat does. Instead, Eddie eats much better food like scrambled eggs, and bacon or sausage for breakfast usually. Eddie usually eats steak or salmon cut up for dinner. She likes basmati rice with it. She must have hot sauce on everything since she LOVES hot sauce. Eddie told Stick Cat that she used to get the food from the pouch, but she made Tiffany, her owner to serve her better food by refusing to eat. Stick Cat also finds a pillow next Eddies bowl. Eddie says that since the floor get cold while she is eating, she stopped eating, which made Tiffany get the pillow.

Next, Eddie shows Stick Cat her bedroom. Again, Stick Cat is shocked that Eddie sleeps with three pillows and a cashmere blanket instead of an old dishtowel and a box. Eddie says that she never knows which pillow is going to be just right on a particular night- one pillow is a little softer, one is a little harder, and one is sort of medium. Eddie says that she wasn’t always sleeping with three pillows and a cashmere blanket. She made Tiffany get them for her by stopping going to sleep.

Next Stick Cat admires the roof of the brick building across the alley through the window since Eddie’s apartment is one floor higher then the building.

Then Eddie tells Stick Cat about Hazel-the women that makes bagels and takes them to her shop ‘Hazel’s Bagels’. Tiffany gets Eddie bagels from ‘Hazel’s Bagels’ every Saturday. The bagels come with cream and lox. Eddie LOVES lox! She says its pink and tastes like fish.

Eddie explains how Hazel makes the bagels as they watch Hazel work. As Hazel pours flour into a giant pot filled with water, Hazel also drinks coffee on the ladder. Then Hazel mixes the flour with the water as she drinks coffee. The coffee spills a little but Hazel doesn’t seem to notice. Now Hazel is reaching deeper into the giant bowl. Then she suddenly falls into the pot. The batter seems to pull Hazel into the batter. Then she disappears into the batter.

Will Stick Cat and Eddie be able to save Hazel from the bowl or will Hazel be stuck in the bowl? Read the book to find out! I like this book because sometimes things are not what they sound like and it was full of action and strategy. I would recommend this book to ages 9-12 and to people who likes short adventures.
