This is a great book: a new boy in Toronto gets to know the city, a colony of feral cats, and the diverse students in his class.

The heartwarming story of a boy who makes a special bond with a junk-yard cat. Taylor is new in the neighborhood, in the diverse city of Toronto. Taking a shortcut from school with a friend, he stumbles on a colony of cats. Taking regular interest and bringing food every time, the cats start to warm up to him and some allow him to pet them. But, the most impressive of them, a proud Hunter is an exception to the common attitude. He keeps aloof from Taylor, more occupied in providing for his own family. But when dogs attack the colony, Hunter is injured. Taylor takes matters into his own hands and takes him to a vet. After Hunter starts to trust Taylor, things get interesting. But a new danger hits the colony, high-rise buildings are being built, and the cats are being removed. Trust will be a major factor as Taylor tries to evacuate the cats and move them to another colony, and wait for Hunter to be trusting enough to be led to a safer place. A perfect read for all middle schoolers.

My congratulations to Canadian author Eric Walters on an outstanding book. ‘Catboy’ was a very entertaining juvenile rated book to read. You do not have to love cats, or animals for that matter, to enjoy this book. The sequel to Catboy is ‘Hunter.’ If you enjoyed this book, Eric Walters ‘End of Days’ is a must read; however it is recommended for older juvenile or teenage/adult readers. Also try Canadian Author J. Fitzgerald McCurdy’s Serpent’s Egg Trilogy: The Serpent’s Egg, The Burning Crown, and The Twisted Blade. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A

If you enjoy this book, The Nine Lives of Travis Keating by Jill MacLean is an excellent readalike.
