The Synopsis:

Buckley and Bogey, Cat Detectives, find their next case hits a little too close to home. Because someone has been breaking into houses and stealing all the Christmas presents! And the first two robberies even took place in their very own neighborhood. Holy Catnip! Of course, the boys leap in on all fours to investigate right away. Then it isn’t long before they realize they are dealing with some real criminal masterminds, since these burglars know exactly how to cover their tracks. Plus, the crooks have the whole town of St. Gertrude on edge and they’re threatening to ruin Christmas for everyone.

But figuring out the identity of the Christmas Crooks isn’t the only mystery around. After all, Buckley had just been adopted from the cat shelter this year, and this was the first he’d ever heard about Christmas. And he quickly finds out there is a lot to learn! From Christmas trees to Santa Claus, and jingle bells to the birth of baby Jesus, the real meaning of Christmas is a mystery to him. But he and Bogey can’t really enjoy any of it until the Christmas Crooks are caught. That’s because it becomes very clear, very quick these Christmas Crooks have set their sights on the boys’ house, too! And the burglars are headed straight for their door. Holy Mackerel! 

I received this book from the author for the purchase of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.


In The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks, Buckley and Bogey return with a new case the smells suspiciously “grinch-y”. Someone is stealing the Christmas decorations right out of people’s homes! Even the cookies! And it’s up to Buckley and Bogey to crack the mystery. 

If you’re a fan of Hank the Cowdog, but you also love cats, Buckley and Bogey is definitely a series you need to pick up! Not only are these cats entertaining in their adventures, but the stories are intriguing and mysterious. Sure to keep even the sharpest of minds guessing!

It’s great for the whole family, and is actually a perfect read-aloud book! I read this aloud to my younger brother and sister and they adored both Buckley and Bogey and were laughing through much of the book.

This entire series is certainly a favorite for my family and I and I easily give it 5 out of 5 stars
