Girl by day. Cat by night. Ready for adventure. In the fifth book of this chapter book series, Kitty, a little girl with catlike superpowers, is on a mission to stop a thief from ruining her town’s annual lantern parade. With dramatic two-color art on every page and an emphasis on friendship, family, building self-confidence, and bravery, Kitty and the Great Lantern Race is perfect for newly independent readers and fans of Rebecca Elliott’s Owl Diaries.
Kitty is proud of the lantern she has crafted for Hallam City’s Festival of Light. But just as the parade starts, a series of mysterious burglaries occur in the crowd. Kitty spots a shadowy figure and knows that she must use her catlike superpowers to investigate. Chasing the culprit without the help of her cat crew tests her bravery and superhero skills, but Kitty’s determined to track down the thief before the city’s festival is ruined.
