Now the Furry Feline Burglary Institute (FFBI) offers her the ultimate caper: steal the giant Himalayan diamond and win their top award!

There's a catch! The FFBI sends an enthusiastic inventor to help Ophelia. . .but this cat works alone, and Oscar Fishgerald Gold smells fishy.

Praise for Snazzy Cat Capers

"Kent's series kickoff is a silly riot. Classy bad girl Ophelia is as funny as she is furry. . .Hooson’s cartoon illustrations and many in-line comic-strip pages are just the ticket to keep pages turning and prompt calls for sequels. She’s the pussycat love child of James Bond and Zsa Zsa Gabor, and who can’t love that?" —Kirkus Reviews

"World-renowned cat burglar Ophelia is the best the Furry Feline Burglary Institute (FFBI) offers (and she always looks fabulous, too). . .This first book in the Snazzy Cat Capers series is full of humor, mystery, and adventure." —Booklist

"More than a just sharply dressed classy kitty. . .Ophelia and Fishgerald squabble and lob quips with amusing ease." —The Bulletin

Reviews from Goodreads

Deanna Kent; illustrated by Neil Hooson

Deanna Kent and Neil Hooson have worked on books, brand and marketing campaigns, and interactive experiences. Deanna loves twinkle lights, black licorice, and Edna Mode, and may be the only person on the planet who says "team work makes the dream work" without a hint of sarcasm. Neil is king of Les Paul guitar, makes killer enchiladas, and really wants aliens to land in his backyard. By far, their greatest creative challenge is raising four (very busy, very amazing) boys. Snazzy Cat Capers is their first chapter book series.
