 About:

‘Basil the Bionic Cat’ is a cross between Inspector Gadget and James Bond with a cat as the hero.

It is a novel at aimed at children between the ages of 8-12 years old but would also appeal to all age groups and particularly to anyone who loves cats.

It tells the story of the Pilkington family’s much-loved tortoise-shell cat, who inadvertently becomes the subject of his owner, Mr P.’s, latest scientific breakthrough – a super strength serum which holds ‘organic bionic’ properties.

However, when a rival scientist becomes involved with an Eastern European Mafia gang in an attempt to steal Mr P.’s latest inventions, the rest of the Pilkington family are put at risk.

Amber and Suzy, Mr P.’s twin daughters, are kidnapped and used as bargaining material in return for Pilkington Industries’ best kept secrets.

Both the Secret Service and Mr P. are on the trail of the Russian spies, but it is down to Basil and his new found sensory powers to track down the villains hideout and help rescue the twins from an unknown fate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book!
This review is from: Basil the Bionic Cat (Hardcover)
This is a great book for children AND adults! It has the delightful animal attraction that is appealing to children, but has a sophisticated level of writing that will appeal to adults. It is a real page turner. I couldn't put it down!.The characters are very believable, and are very "real" with delightful interactions and development. Basil, the hero of the story, is wonderful, of course, but all the characters have great appeal.
The descriptions are very imaginative and as a reader I got a real "sense of place" as the adventure unfolded.
The story goes beyond sci-fi and has elements of a mystery novel as the reader tries to guess who is the real villian and how things are going to turn out.
More, the book has some wonderful humor in it, made me burst out laughing at times, and it's got plenty of action and suspense.
The author never "writes down" to her audience, but weaves a tale that is at once compelling and emotionally enticing. We really feel for the characters and their experiences.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am recommending it to all my friends. It is a delightful experience and I hope to see more from this very talented author.
Get the book, you'll have a great time!

This review is from: Basil the Bionic Cat (Hardcover)
I have just read this book and I have to say it's brilliant. A rip roaring, page turning adventure from start to finish and completely engrossing. The characters are very original and believable, as is the dialogue and plot, all extremely well paced and put together. Basil is a cat I would love to own, he is super intelligent and has a wicked sense of humour! (that's if cats have a sense of humour) The mice are hilarious too, there are some very funny parts that actually make you laugh out loud. This book would also make a fantastic movie.I just have one other thought, is Basil actually real, does anyone know? Because that would be really incredible if the book was based on a real cat!

5.0 out of 5 starsI so loved this book! Basil is Pawesome!
This review is from: Basil the Bionic Cat (Hardcover)
I really loved this book, it's a great mix of slick plotting and fast paced action. I know it's aimed for the younger generation, ages 8 and up, but to be honest, I sometimes enjoy younger fiction more so than adult and this book is no exception.

Basil is a remarkably intelligent cat even before the accidental mishap, involving a top secret formula accidentally administered the funniest mouse in the entire history of fiction - if nothing else, just read it for Dwayne.

After the 'incident' Basil becomes the worlds first Organic-Bionic Cat, now if that is not the coolest thing ever, I don't know what is! He becomes more than just a cat, his special skills are too many and in depth to list here, you'll just have to take my word for it, but he is a force to be reckoned with, which is just as well considering the awful sequence of events that unfold from that point on.... I won't spoil it for you, but roller coaster ride it certainly is.

So if you are looking for something fresh, extremely original and non magical, this is the book for you. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll love Basil.
 So there you have it, if you love cats get my book you won't be disappointed I purromise!
