I love the catwings. Cats that can fly. Perfect. ( )

Alexander doesn't have wings, and imagines himself a brave adventurer, unlike his sibs. Off he goes, to be helped by Jane. Interesting that Jane ends up in a parallel situation in the next book. It kept W's attention, and he recalled aspects of previous books when reading this one, but I don't see it as a re-read. ( )

A little more intense than the first. Perfect series for young female reluctant readers. ( )
