Kiwi and the Missing Magic
Ebook version published on July 4, 2011.
James and Amy embark on their second exciting adventure with their little black cat, Kiwi, which will take them to the Land of Giant Mice in search of the missing Magic. The trio return to Cat City to help their friends and meet some new characters along the way, including the Worry Bee, Whiskers and Moggie. Can James and Amy help Kiwi save the day?

Furry fun for ages 9-99.
"Kiwi is [as] fun to read as ever! If you are following Kiwi Series closely, you can certainly find the same funny and witty story here, with a bonus, of course. Vickie has included other animals and they account for the clever plot of this sequel. It's not complicated though, but sure you are going to be served with a few surprises. Eeek Fu! My mouth is sealed." - Helmy Kusuma
"Vickie Johnstone is a born storyteller and has the talent to keep her series fresh with new adventures while maintaining the usual cast of characters - and adding new ones to bring on the magic. In her second book she introduces some well designed wisdom about traits all children should learn and this is a major plus to the further growth of the series." - Grady Harp
"Cat City seems even more fun the second time they visit. Vickie Johnstone really has a great imagination, and creates a cozy world for cats and a underground kingdom of giant mice who plan on invading Cat City. Is there enough time to prevent the attack and what is Kiwi going to do about it? This book has lots of surprises, a unique plot and captivating characters." - Rebecca Johnson
"The second book in Vickie Johnstone's 'Kiwi' series is just as engaging as the first. I truly enjoyed the way the author makes an imaginary tale come to life. Kiwi, the cat, the two children, James and Amy, along with a pet hamster and a mouse, [have to] prevent Cat City from being destroyed. The Kiwi series is intended for kids, but grown-ups such as myself will love the book as well. I highly recommend the whole series." - Lady Wings
"Kiwi's gang is back in full force! Vickie has again created a huge fun filled adventure for us to follow, and I loved every bit of it. I hope that the series continues to produce such magical tales for a long, long time." - Ritesh Kala
