In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Vacation Hiro by Meg Welch Dendler
Vacation Hiro – I was thrilled to hear from Meg that there was another book ready to read in the Cats in the Mirror series.
I’m honored to be part of her blog tour celebrating Vacation Hiro‘s release.
Celebrate this new book release! Vacation Hiro will come out on November 15th!
It was a pleasure to enjoy Vacation Hiro and I was pleasantly surprised to realize that I enjoyed Vacation Hiro even more than Why Kimba Saved the World. Perhaps it was because I really enjoyed the developed world that Meg Welch Dendler created on the spaceship for the cats from outer space, I think it helped me shape the image of Meg’s alien cat society in a way that wasn’t introduced in the first book. In Vacation Hiro our main character, Hiro, is thrown when the family packs up and leaves without returning that night… she misses her daddy and is worried how he will sleep without her curled up next to him. She is thrown into even more turmoil when she begins talking to the forbidden cats in the mirror in her parent’s bathroom and learns of her complicated background. She brings her sister Kimba into the exploration and mystery and encounters a whole new world. I enjoyed following the parents and children to their family trip and reading how there were cats monitoring the family movements so that the two kittens, Kimba and Hiro, had the opportunity to learn and understand why they were so important to the space cats. Quite a fun adventure to read. The book, Vacation Hiro, could be a stand alone title but the two go quite well hand in hand. There will be a third book coming along soon enough as well! I recommend this series!
Here’s something I loved: Meg introduced a rule that the cat spaceship maintained for all cats on duty: four-hour shifts, can’t expect more than that, they need their rest to sustain energy!
“Some cats,” Griffin added, “go back and forth for Earth-lives several times…” — made me think about cat’s situations…

Goodreads Summary: “This is the second book in the Cats in the Mirror series. Destiny is a tricky thing. By its very nature, it cannot be avoided. Hiro and Kimba thought they were free from the pull of their destiny and the scheming of the alien Cats in the Mirror. But when the family goes away on an extended vacation, the sisters find themselves right back in the middle of it all again. A week is an eternity for a cat left behind. Without Daddy’s love and care, will Hiro be tempted to join her cat family and leave Earth behind? Will finding out who they really are change the sisters’ lives forever?
Some cats are born on Earth and never know who they really are. Other are sent. They are undercover for their years on Earth. They know who they are. They know that they are not from Earth at all. And they are part of a bigger plan.
This middle grade book is perfect for for those who love cat books for kids or animal books for kids and are looking for chapter books.”
Perrier- my husband was handed this can at a fair… who knows when one of us will drink it…
