One thought on “The Grand Escape

  1. Jill

    Two brother cats decide they are tired of being indoor cats and escape to look for that wonderful place called a ranch On the way, they meet a group of cats living in the loft of a garage, leading the brother cats to a series of adventures The Grand Escape is light hearted fun, clearly written for younger readers The story is told from the cats perspective and while there is plenty of danger, fairy tale happiness rules over reality Although I enjoyed the story, as an adult, the plot was a bit bl [...]

  2. Hunter

    I remember reading this when I was ten years old I loved it, and thought that Naylor did a great job of portraying cats as they see themselves you never think about an animal s perspective until you read or watch a story like this I read Carlotta s Kittens a few years later, and I need to go back and read them all it was a great book for me because I have always had cats, and I love the personification of animals in fiction.

  3. Jackie

    This was my absolute favorite book as a younger girl I found it the other day while cleaning, and I swooned I can remember reading it with my mom, and then again by myself many times It s adorable It is a must read for any cat lovers, is witty, and is an absolute delight for any child, in my opinion.

  4. Anna

    I picked this up rather randomly at the library because the idea made me grin I read it in a whole afternoon, so it s not long, but not too short either.In this book Two brother cats, Marco and Polo, used to live at home, but as life went on, they became restless Eventually, they escape the house and realize the world is a big and scary place To join a special cat pack, they have to go and complete 3 quests all of which are dangerous for a cat I hope you like it like I did It was cute.

  5. Becky Combs

    I am cleaning out Yes, even books I found this children s book I had not read before It is a delightful tale of 2 brother house cats who want to go Outside They do, and they have a big adventure Sweet story.

  6. Carrie

    This was a childhood favorite that has stayed with me throughout the years I was happy to discover it when cleaning out my old room It wasn t quite as exciting to me as an adult no, that s not a given , but it gets points for the fond memories Plus, any cat loving kid would love it just like I did, I m sure.

  7. (F.O.P.) Friend of Pixie

    L is not quite ready for the popular Cat Warriors stories a bit too tense , but this is a great lead in to that This series is about two tabby housecats named Marco and Polo who escape from their home and have some daring adventures in the bigger world They want to join the local cat club, but to do so, they have to solve three mysteries, such as What Is Inside Betram the Bad s dog house Bertram is a cat chasing Mastiff I found these fun to read aloud, seeing the world from the cat perspective T [...]

  8. Ashleigh Cutler

    The first book of Marco and Polo s adventures is the best of the series It jives well with Dick King Smith s The Mouse Butcher as well The characters are fun You have Texas Jake, the top cat and somewhat of a bully to the boys yet kind to others Carlotta, the calico who all the gang respect and try not to upset You have only one life, she tells the boys, and once you lose it, no cat There s two , Elvis the singer and Boots, who is sidekick to T.J than anything if I remember correctly The story [...]

    I liked this book because it was about these two cats and they go on this adventure So one day they sneek out of the house and they go to this restaraunt called the Big Burger So when Marco and Polo go to a trash can these cats come along and Marco and this other cat start to get in a fight So after the fight was over, Marco and Polo wait until they are done and they meet a new cat named Carlotta So when they were done, they ate out of the trash cans and they had fish, ham burgers, cheese burger [...]

  10. Ann Coleman

    This is not a new book, but it was new to me Cleverly written book about two house cats that decide to leave home to move to a ranch, though they weren t certain what a ranch was One of the cats had cleverly slipped out for a short time when a door had been left open Touching grass was a wild experience Looking at birds from outside was so very different from the window s view.When they make their heroic departure from their safe home they meet some interesting cats and oh what they see and lear [...]

  11. Cheryl

    A wonderful story about two cats, Marco and Polo, who escape from their comfortable life indoors They begin an adventure as they meet some outdoor cats, and attempt to join a club presided over by Texas Jake The characters and adventures they have along the way will have you laughing out loud A great story for all cat lovers

  12. Cal

    A bit simple, and the characters are somewhat stereotypicalAlright for a kids book though personally I prefer ones where the cats actually interact with and appreciate humans instead of humans always being the big blundering oafs who just feed them.

  13. King Haddock

    I really enjoyed the Cat Pack books, very different in demeanor from the depressing Shiloh series Reynolds Naylor is known for These are just silly, cute animal fiction books in which the cats discuss the questions of life and get everything wrong.

  14. Velvetea

    Oh, this is an adorable book about kitties, and their hunger for a new life all their own As a 7th grader, I found myself sympathizing with them all the way I always had a deep love and respect for animals so much I fancied myself one most days _ It was such a cute read.

  15. Molly G

    A much needed change of pace from the last few books I read Wonderful characterizations of cats, portrayal of physicality seems exceptionally good in writing, as well as worldviews and understandings quite intelligently simple Good use of naming the protagonists Marco and Polo Excellent YA.

  16. Danielle

    This is a childrens young readers book, but it was one that really touched my heart as a child If you re looking for a gift for a child in your life or if you d just like to read a touching story, I highly recommend this book.

  17. Dan Rogers

    Read it because it s the assigned summer reading for my sixth graders It was okay but certainly nothing to rave about.

  18. Ash

    This was one of my favorite books when I was growing up I love the section where Naylor describes the cats going through the trash of the diner the first time.

  19. Ruthie

    I liked this book for how cleverly it s written Seeing the world from these cats point of view is really funny.

  20. Ashley

    The first real chapter book I ever picked out January 1995 and the book that made me fall in love with reading Always love to revisit an old friend.

  21. Tori

    they had just got to the dark alley and Marco had a fight with a huge cat named Texas Jake i believe, and just met a female cat that has the perfect life Page 30

  22. Jennifer Willson

    One of the first books I remember reading, and being a cat person I loved the adventures of Marco and Polo

  23. Jill

    This book is awesome It is about Marco and Polo the cats trying to make the grand escape I think that anybody would like this book It is very nice.
