Terrific timing, as I'll be doing my first school visit and reading of Tamara tomorrow, and I'll be reading and signing at Church in the City on Sunday (50% of proceeds going to the Toronto Wildlife Centre)...

Lost and Found: Mysterious Tales from Fairy Falls
by Sharon LedwithThe Fairy Falls Animal Shelter is in trouble. Money trouble. It’s up to an old calico cat named Whiskey—a shelter cat who has mastered the skill of observation—to find a new human pack leader so that their home will be saved. With the help of Nobel, the leader of the shelter dogs, the animals set out to use the ancient skill of telepathy to contact any human who bothers to listen to them. Unfortunately for fifteen-year-old Meagan Walsh, she hears them, loud and clear.
YA, Paranormal, Mystery
Sharon Ledwith’s “Lost and Found” (the first in her “Mysterious Tales from Fairy Falls” series) is a truly fun mystery for middle-grade and young adult readers (and readers of all ages, honestly). As an author, canine (and feline) massage therapist and all around general animal lover from Ontario, the story suited me to a tee, what with it’s setting in an animal shelter in a small town in northern Ontario!
Meagan Walsh is both a typical rebellious teen and atypical girl with special and highly useful abilities—who wouldn’t want to be able to talk to animals! Whiskey, cat and permanent resident of the shelter, is an engaging and unusual mentor for Meagan. I love the way Sharon presents the animals’ way of thinking. The dogs are very much “dogs” and the cats…well, you get the picture. But each character has his or her own very individual, very strong personality, be they cat, dog or human.
A unique way to allow animal characters to talk, a mystery that keeps you guessing and twists and turns ensure the reader simply cannot put the book down—what more could an animal-lover and avid reader want?
