Dogfight (Flying Furballs #1)

Author(s): Donovan Bixley

NZ Junior Fiction

Our hero is Claude D'Bonair, a young pilot in the Cat Air Corp, keen to prove his worth to the older pilots and live up to the memory of his father. Will cats and dogs ever live in harmony again? And will Claude survive with his nine lives intact? In book one, Dogfight, Claude must fly a secret and dangerous mission deep into the heart of Dogz held territory to save the Air Corp's most famous dogfighter, Major Tom, who is being held prisoner in the Dogz castle HQ. If he fails it could spell cat-astrophe for the whole of katdom. There's mysterious spies, secret messages, and codes to crack, plus lots of laughs and action. Along the way, Claude is helped by Manx, a no-nonsense young girl mechanic; Syd Fishus, a jaded old pilot; and C4, HQ's resident inventor (whose gadgets never seem to work as intended). All the while there is a traitor within katdom.
