In Alison Lurie’s only novel for young people, completed in 2012 and published posthumously in 2022, Tom, a striped kitten, hopes to be a detective. He has to learn fast to outsmart some human villains who don’t like him snooping around into their criminal lives. Dr. Nancy, a veterinarian, and Lennie, a wise-guy cat friend, lead him into fur-raising adventures among drug dealers, catnappers, and feisty mice. The Cat Agent will delight kids, their families, and small animals that like to be read to.
