Kid’s Book Review: Nimbus

Kid’s Book Review: Nimbus

About the Book and Author

The ingredients of Nimbus are: magic, cats and adventure. Our young reviewer is lost for words to explain why this is the best book ever so you may just have to trust him and give it a go!

Nimbus had a rough start as a kitten. But her fortunes changed the day she met Fletcher. The boy nursed her back to health from a life-threatening injury and adopted her.
But when Fletcher’s aunt brings home a mysterious jar, an ancient demon is unwittingly unleashed. Despite battling the monster to save her friend, Fletcher’s superstitious aunt blames Nim for the attack and secretly abandons her at a dump.

There, Nim is befriended by a theater-loving rat and taken in by a kindly witch named Agatha and her motley crew of cats. Nim soon discovers that her battle with the demon left her with special powers—but more than that, she begins to suspect that she has always been destined for something extraordinary.
