Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #9 The Cat Who....

Welcome to 

The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Pawesome greetings fellow bibliocats

*waves paw*

It's delightful to be here with mew again and I can safely say this week there have been no mishaps thus far, but that could be due to the fact that we got the P.A. a bubble-wrap suit which our pawesome pals at suggested.

[if this is your image purrlease let us know and we'll add an attribute]

Admittedly she's not too keen on the styling or the colour of said suit, but we said,

"Mew're a total liability and it's fur your own well being!"

She had no argument at all, other than can we get her a hot pink one with a BionicBasil logo!!!  MOL

We're wurking on it...

Anyhoo it's that time again, so let's get on with the show.

This week on Book Reviews with Amber, I'm sharing

The Cat Who Could Read Backwards


Lilian Jackson Braun

The Cat Who Series is one of my all-time favs effur and this novel is the furry furst one in the series written in 1966.  

It tells the tale of crime reporter Jim Qwilleran who is attempting to get his life back in order by accepting a job with his old pal at a new Newspaper, The Flux. But instead of reporting crime, his new gig is on the art-scene and his days are spent purrusing galleries and exhibitions. Howeffur it's not long until there's a murder and he's smack in the middle of it.

Enter Koko the incredibly intelligent Siamese, who Qwill inadvertently adopts aftur his owners untimely demise. A rather fussy eater, yet amazingly astute kitty who appears to know things even before they happen.

If mew love a murder mystery, mew'll love this series. A purrfect cozy mystery.

This is my purrsonal Cat Who Collection

We were effur so sorry when the author died a few years ago as there'd be no more books, yet the good news is; there are 29 books in total so that's plenty to keep mew going fur a while, that's if mew haven't already stumbled upon this superb series.

Paperback copy: 196 pages long
