I hope you all had a great Christmas break. Happy new year! Welcome 2021!
2020 was not the greatest year, but this quote I wanted to share, because it is a very good explanation of last year: “There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.” I personally found 2020 pretty good except Corona/Covid-19 of course. The virus also had good things to it – like everyone learned to have more responsibility than normal and we learned a lot about technology, whether at distance schooling or work. It was also very nice to have more time with my family and of course I had loads of time to read.
My motto for 2021 is: #1 Stay positive. #2 Be respectful to everyone.
Because of the virus we didn’t go away during the break and we only went out to play tennis or to go for walks or biking – so I spent pretty much time inside reading. This book my parents got me as a present on Christmas eve. After reading the Funjungle and Spy School novels and also part of the Moon Base Alpha series, I have to say this book is the best book Stuart Gibbs ever created! I loved it a lot and I got into trouble a couple of times because it was so hard to stop reading to have family dinner or lunch or breakfast or what so ever. I pretty much read it in one go because it was soooo good.

The fluffy, groomed cat Maximilian was used to live in the “most fashionable townhouse in London.” Sitting on a comfortable, red cushion and having only the best of the best food a cat can eat.
I liked the book because it is a book about friendship. Maximilian didn’t give up and although he was sad at the beginning of the story when he lost his home but he was all happy again in the end. What I didn’t like was that Countess Arlington wanted to drown Max. I found that a bit rough and not necessary.
I would recommend the book for kids 8 years and older. It has 196 pages and is not so hard to read. Rating: 8/10
