Kung Fu Kitty called Wu Zhua in previous book set the cat nation free from the Monkey Dynasty, who rules in Monkey Kingdom. Now in this book Wu Zhua learn how is to be independent and lives independent life without slavery and oppression. She is new president of the newfound nation Catland, which is situated inside the borders of former Monkey Kingdom, along the Yellow River in ancient China. The citizens of the Catland must follow these rules:

A cat must be loyal to family

And do his best to keep folk free.

A cat may kill spiders, mice and rats

But never, ever other cats

A cat shouldn’t steal, curse or lie

Or poke his neighbor in the eye…

There are other rules too, I choose first of those rules just to illustrate to you how Wu Zhua imagine her world and nation live in peace.

The story is very captivating and very rich with characters and scenes, which I imagine so easily and in the meantime enjoy in them. My imagination was fueled not just with those incredible great described scenes but with black and white illustrations. These illustrations are made by Michael Gentile very well   with black ink on white paper. Here in Kung Fu Kitty the story of Exodus is retold with animal characters and the main character is cat.

I like how Wu Zhua is described and how she manages to lead her cat nation in independency and emancipation. In her character I see real person not an animal. Lately I have plenty of thought which telling me that animal are smarter than people and that they deserve more care and attention from us. They are pure souls who need care as babies. There in the book they are as humans, they are independent and they talk, look after oneself and manage their own kingdom with rules.

I recommend this book to everyone. This is not just a story for children, but this is the captivating story for all ages, about freedom and bravery.
