Bobo the Pirate's Cat by Lisa Jones takes readers on a journey with Bobo the cat who comes across an abandoned ship on the wild seas. He tries to scan the entire length of the vessel and can see no signs of life. Suddenly he sees a reflection of a bedraggled looking parrot. Red Beard, the Captain, and the crew find out the boat is already ransacked. They find only a few gold coins and come back with the squawking parrot. Bobo tries to find out the truth and he becomes convinced of his suspicions when he discovers the strange blue powder. He makes his own plans and finds his life being changed forever.

The story with its piratical theme is filled with adventure, mystery and suspense. Pirate-themed stories always fascinate children. The twists and turns in the plot add to the intrigue and keep readers glued to the story. Whether it is the Blobba-Lobba tribe, Polly the parrot, Black-Smoke, Red Beard, the adventure on the high seas or the monster, the story is filled with mischief and action. Bobo will steal readers' hearts with his courage, loyalty and determination. The way Bobo supports his captain is indeed noteworthy and that really works out well in the end. The narration is wonderfully descriptive and it enhances the darkness of the plot effectively. Every character has an aura of mystery surrounding them and they make the story exciting and thrilling.
