Captain Cat & the Umbrella Kid in Cards of Chaos, by Paul Shaw

Captain Cat and his trusty young sidekick, the Umbrella Kid, have a new foe: the Cardsharp. This dastardly Villain has plenty of tricks up his sleeve as he leads Captain Cat on a merry chase around the city.

The Captain and Billy must solve the clues left by the Cardhsarp to guess where he is planning to show up next and try to stop the damage he is intent on inflicting.

Cards of Chaos is the third book in the Capatin Cat series where young Billy works as the Umbrella Kid alongside the brave Captain Cat.

With loads of silliness and a style both reminiscent of and parodical of superhero comic books, the books are sure to appeal to upper primary aged chidlren.
