Holm & Hamel can neither confirm nor deny any knowledge regarding the whereabouts of Agent Bristlefur, alias Mr. Stink. They may or may not live in the vicinity of Washington, D.C., and they are rumored to have more than zero but fewer than two cats.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5–James Edward Bristlefur, feline companion of British master spy Sir Archibald, vows revenge when his human is murdered. However, before he can trace the killer, he is shanghaied to New Jersey. After a dismal incarceration in a bleak animal shelter, the cat is adopted by a family he considers way below his standards. It's not just the grape-colored minivan or the middle-class furniture, or even the insulting name that fifth-grader Aaron calls him. James considers the whole New World experience far beneath him. Even American mice fail to understand proper etiquette. The urbane cat plots to escape and return to England to continue his investigation, but reluctantly becomes involved with his new humans. When he discovers that Aaron is the victim of a neighborhood bully, the Feline Code of Honor obliges the furry agent to intervene. In addition, James gradually begins to suspect his presence in America is no coincidence and that the answer to Sir Archibald's death might be on this side of the water. The cat's upper-class, James Bond-style narration provides a humorous contrast to the Jersey accent of the local dogs and mice and the everyday American English of the humans. The black-and-white illustrations emphasize this class contrast as well. The question of Sir Archibald's murderer is left for another volume, but mystery fans will find plenty to enjoy in this first adventure.–Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL
