Xander the Hunter, one of Catamondo´s Purrtectors, receives a message from Haiti. Purrsey Lourdes, Purrtector of Haiti, tells that her country is in revolt. She needs help and advice how to keep peace on her jurisdiction.

Xander reads her message for the tenth time, and recollects how beautiful eyes she has. So who can say no, and Xander sails with Whispurring Winds to Haiti.

There starts an adventure, dangerous and twisted. Following Xander`s paw prints a reader gets to know Haiti, is`s history, religion, people and it`s animal kingdom and Xander finds out there is now really something wrong, as Purrsay said.

Xander gets new friends and enemies.He learns to know what is wrong and where.  Who is that lovely little girl using a pink flower as a rain hat, why Xander is having a talkative scarf?

Reading this book like an adventure book, I had a feeling I am adventuring with Xander ” James Bond” Hunter. These two heroes have an ability to make sudden and  right decisions and also react immediately. They know  High-Tech equipments and they really use them. They both remember beautiful eyes, too.

This book has, like Red Claw, many levels, it is an adventure book with a social meaning. This book shows how important is education, health care to every one, cats, dogs, humans. It is also  a book against racism. Jeanne Foguth has a talent to tell all these issues in her own way. The riots started in this book when kittens and puppies were planned to have only one school.

If you want to know about the end of this book, I tell you it is really a happy end.

 

 

 

 

Skiing.

In Finland every municipality has places for skiing, big centers or smaller ones.In small places are only ski tracks and maybe a hut with a possibility to make fire like this one we visited today in Vatula, in a town of Ikaalinen.

Guide signs. Reitti and ura means route, kota is a hut, laavu is a wicket.
