Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue is a super-fantastic early chapter book for ages 8-12 years old.  Kitty’s mother has left for the night.  She's on the prowl, being a superhero, and helping the people of the city with her "catty" superpowers.  Kitty hears a knock at the window and meets a young cat in need of a superhero.  Kitty must decide if she can be brave and go help somebody in need all by herself - without having powers.  If someone is in trouble, she must at least try. On her adventure, Kitty makes some friends.
I loved this book; there is already a second book out in the series and a third landing in March.  (full info. here) I really liked this book, because Kitty gathers up the courage and belief in herself to help out her new friends.  You get to see her confidence grow throughout the story.  Especially when one of her newfound friends is a little unsure of themselves.  It gets the official #alexapproved.

Girl by day. Cat by night. Ready for an adventure. Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue is the first book in a chapter book series about Kitty and her superhero adventures. 

Meet Kitty, a charming chapter book character with catlike superpowers. With dramatic two-color art on every page and an emphasis on friendship, family, bravery, and building self-confidence, Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue is a perfect choice for independent readers and fans of Rebecca Elliott’s Owl Diaries.

Kitty is special. Her mother is a superhero with catlike powers that Kitty and her little brother Max will someday inherit. But being a superhero involves going on daring adventures at night, and Kitty doesn’t know if she’ll ever be brave enough for that!

One night though, Kitty finds a sleek black cat with white paws waiting at her window. When he introduces himself, Kitty is shocked to realize she can understand him—her powers have arrived! The cat, Figaro, has a problem. There’s a terrible meowing sound coming from the clock tower, and the other cats don’t know what to do. The night outside looks cold and uninviting, and Kitty is afraid of the dark. But she musters up her courage and sets out to find the source of the mysterious sound. Along the way, she makes new friends, uncovers her confidence, and learns what it means to be brave.

 With an aspirational main character, a kindle of cats, striking two-color art on every page, and fun facts included at the end of each story, these chapter books are just right for newly independent readers.
