Filled with fascinating and highly Google-able locations and history this book will inspire anyone to learn and experience more for themselves. There are currently three books in the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series, and a fourth to be released in 2014.
I have very much enjoyed going on this first adventure with Kitty! I really love that I can learn about the places she is at and be a more active participant in my book! There are tons of detail and I’ve learned quite a bit about whales, Alaska and so much more! More than once I’ve caught myself warning Kitty as I read. LOL. Something about her makes me want to climb in and make her follow that instinct we ignore when we are a little too curious for our own good!
If you know someone who loves adventure, this may be just the book for them! It will inspire them to follow their heart and dreams! I can’t wait to pass this book on to my niece, I think she will enjoy the adventure!
