At first glance, I automatically concluded that Cats, Cannolis and a Curious Kidnapping is a kiddies book. I mean with such a fairytale sounding name, a comic multicolored cover page and large fonts. However, I was totally wrong, and the saying never judge a book by its cover comes to mind.
The book is actually written like a diary or maybe biography but fictional about the life of Anna Romano.
One of the basic things that make a book to be seen as a classic is its ability to resonate with a wide spectrum of readers; this book surely has such trappings as many people can easily identify with it in their personal day-to-day living.
The author’s witty way of presenting words can be quite funny and ensures that one would scarcely get bored reading the book.
The style of writing is casual with dates that either takes one back to events that happened earlier or later.
Cons about the book: The font is quite large and would have been ideal if the book is meant for children, but from the plot, it is obviously for adult consumption. Same goes for the cover picture and diagrams used in the book which are actually creative for children but not matured enough for adult audience.
‘Cats, Cannolis and a Curious Kidnapping’ is unique and quite interesting in its own way.
