Lilian Jackson Braun brings back James Qwilleran and his famous felines, Koko and Yum Yum, for the twenty-ninth installment of the beloved, bestselling Cat Who… series.

Moose County, 400 miles north of everywhere, is in an uproar (good and bad) following vast inheritances from wealthy old families. Only “Cool Koko” knows what’s happening, and he’s not telling. Jim Qwilleran thinks it’s because he has more whiskers than ordinary cats, but who’s counting?

Meanwhile Koko meets a piano tuner, Polly goes to Paris, Qwill writes an absurdist play titled The Cat Who Got Elected Dog Catcher, and there’s a mysterious death from a bee sting.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 2/19/2014

    " This was not the best "Cat Who" book, but it was pretty good. It was short and easy to read. Sometimes I just like to have something light and a little bit cheesy, not so deep. These always fit the bill. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 2/18/2014

    " Fun as always but not as developed as prior books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Natalie | 2/15/2014

    " I really enjoyed many of the early books in this series. This installment did not have the spirit or the authenticity of the others. It felt like someone had created a book out of index cards written by someone else. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Naticia | 2/15/2014

    " Nothing happened - and yet! everything changed! Probably my least favorite of the series, which I do otherwise love. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marianne | 2/6/2014

    " Not her best. Not much plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 2/4/2014

    " This was really more of a collection of vignettes of Moose County and its residents rather than a mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 1/20/2014

    " I hate having to give any book such a low rating. I really do. But this one was... basically incomprehensible, I guess. I started reading this series when I was twelve, and even though I don't read as many cozies in general anymore, this is one series that I always read, out of loyalty, or nostalgia, or something. Some of the earlier ones really were quite good. Unfortunately, I think Mrs. Braun is overdue for retirement. Or at least needs a serious editor. Was there even a mystery in this mystery? Sort of vaguely, I guess. But there was no coherent plot, and the characters acted very out-of-character, and the writing was disjointed. It made me sad. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Are | 1/14/2014

    " bleh, if this is the direction braun is taking the cat who books no more for me! I feel like qwilleran hasn't developed as a character and that he's shown a marked lack of emotion when people he knows dies or something huge happens in his own life. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nikki | 9/6/2013

    " Another disappointment, as the plot and characters imploded on themselves. Sad, the way this series disintegrated. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roxann | 6/19/2013

    " I have read all the books in this series. Happily I haven't purchased all of them. This is the latest one. It was a fast read, but the series proably needs to be ended. Not much plot, etc. If you want to get into the series read the first several books, but not this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charles | 6/2/2013

    " There are times I wonder why I insist on sticking with a series, when it inevitably declines, and this one was a prime example. No offense to the late Mrs. Braun, but I probably could've skipped the last few in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mirsa | 5/8/2013

    " I can't be partial on this review because I love cats.... Cool Coco stole my heart and I loved reading this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pat | 3/19/2013

    " In a word-disappointing. A muddled end to a once-fun series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kim | 1/29/2013

    " Read all the bad reviews below. Ditto. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dora | 12/5/2012

    " Probably my least favorite Cat Who book so far. Really disliked how she handled the relationship with Polly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 11/22/2012

    " Yet another great story in this series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 11/10/2012

    " not as good as earlier ones. murder is incidental and barely mentioned "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Delia | 6/21/2012

    " I got this one as an audio book so I'm not sure if I would have enjoyed it more had I read it myself or not. Overall I thought it was ok. I will have to try another audio book soon and see if I like that one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Odetta | 6/19/2012

    " It was sure a dumb book. Who ever heard of a cat with 60 whiskers? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 3/20/2012

    " Excellent! As good as all the rest! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 1/16/2012

    " This felt a bit disjointed to me and I kept waiting for the author to pull it all together and even then it was not all that interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mackenzie | 12/15/2011

    " A quick read but the story didn't really follow the mystery and the death it followed Koko. it was still a good book overall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 9/25/2011

    " I love the cats in this book, but this story was not as compelling as others I have read of hers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alice | 7/4/2011

    " This was my least favorite of all of her books I've read. I was particularly disappointed in the way she handled Polly's trip. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 5/14/2011

    " I really enjoyed this series and I'm sad that there will be no more. Some day I hope to re-read the entire series again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marissa | 5/8/2011

    " In this latest Cat Who, the murder mystery takes a backseat to catching up on the goings-on in PickAxe. As a long-time fan of the series, I found it interesting to learn more about the town, but the murder mystery was certainly not up to par. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ceanne | 4/25/2011

    " Again, a nice, easy read with some cute antics by the cats in question. And the story continues on Jim Qwilleran's life "400 miles north of everwhere"... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 4/24/2011

    " Not quite a satisfying book. At first, I thought that the book must have been abridged. It was shorter than some of the earlier abridged books that I read. Also, I thought the ending was kind of abrupt, and didn't really wrap things up well.

    Maybe she's running out of steam.
    "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carmen | 4/21/2011

    " I'd only recommend reading this one if you are determined to read every book in the series. Otherwise, skip this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 4/3/2011

    " Was not really thrilled with this book. The last one that was published, but too disconnected. It really seemed like she was working on ending the series. Too much going on, but not enough connection to any thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 3/16/2011

    " I loved all the Cat Who books! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pam | 1/15/2011

    " I usually love The Cat Who books, but this one just didn't seem up to par with the rest of the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pat | 1/3/2011

    " In a word-disappointing. A muddled end to a once-fun series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 12/11/2010

    " This is a delightful book if you like cats! The plot is a bit thin and not much is resolved at then end. Changes occur for the major characters as a lead in to the next book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 April | 12/1/2010

    " I've been reading this series for over 15 years and it really seems to be going downhill. This book was super short and seemed to end before the story was completed. Disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gheeta | 11/20/2010

    " It feels as though Braun hurried through the writing this book, as if she were trying to tie up loose ends between some of the beloved characters in her series. I am sad about the way some of the plot played out, and I hope that this does not end up as the final book in the 'Cat Who...' series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 10/3/2010

    " Another enjoyable book from the The Cat Who series. I don't want to post any spoilers but one of the main characters did something quite surprising (no, not Koko or Yum Yum)... "
