Kitten Kaboodle Mission 2: The Lightning Opal

By Eileen O'Hely
Illustrated by Heath McKenzie

The second book in the hilarious Kitten Kaboodle series.

“DOG sent that mousebot after me for a reason,” said Kitten Kaboodle. “Our mission, if we choose to accept it, is to find out why.” Kitten Kaboodle is no bundle of fluff. His scratching post is a comms unit and his collar can freeze a dog at twenty paces. Kitten Kaboodle is the number one secret agent at CAT – the Clandestine Activity Taskforce. When the Disaster Organisation Group (DOG) sends an opal-chipped robot to find Kitten Kaboodle, he leads the canines to CAT Headquarters, and then all the way to Lightning Ridge. Can Kitten Kaboodle stop DOG from using the opalised dinosaur skeleton that lies beneath the desert sand?

  • Fun text by award-winning author Eileen O’Hely and quirky illustrations by much-loved artist Heath McKenzie.
  • Sequel to Kitten Kaboodle Mission 1: The Catier Emerald (2014). Praise from Books+Publishing: “This book, aimed at readers aged seven and up, is a lot of fun … This is the first in the series and is highly recommended.”
