And she asks the president of France at a state dinner what he thinks about Jean Genet, which leaves him utterly flummoxed. Even more alarmingly, she finds that reading has softened her up — made her aware of her own emotions and more sympathetic to others. Not quite knowing how to do this, the doddering Sir Claude gently suggests that the queen take up writing instead — a suggestion she embraces with alacrity. Bennett has written a captivating fairy tale.

On the subject of Cat's Eyewitness specifically, it seems to deal less than previously with the talking, sleuthing animals and more with issues such as religion and lesbianism.
Of course there still are murders to be solved and a "shocking revelation of a mystery that has perplexed the citizens of Crozet for ages" to be discovered.

That about sums it up, I think, but to rephrase: it's a Christmas time book set in Corgiville we've come to know from the two previous books in the Corgiville series: the plot, however, does not carry over from the previous books. There's a Japanese edition that has been around for a while longer, but this is the first US edition.
The sights, sounds, smells, and all the fun and excitement of a typical small-town fair are captured with humor and affection both in the text and in the marvelously detailed watercolor paintings. Presumably very heart-warming stuff here for the adults as well. This is the first book in the Corgiville series, although the plot does not carry over into the sequels.

Like the TV series, the Manga appears to be episodic in nature, each volume of DX containing a separate adventure". It's also worth noting that the character designs for the 1st series differ quite a bit from those in the anime show and the 2nd series. I presume Ein is still a Pembroke in it though. There is also a non-canonical manga sequel of sorts it essentially rewrites certain bits of the original anime show's ending I don't care to spoil for you but it doesn't feature Ein or any other corgis AFAIK, so it'll be safe to ignore.
