The Cat Who Came to Breakfast

As you can see, my much loved copy.
Our cat Blue chewed on the corner
when it was under my bed.
Penned By: Lilian Jackson Braun

I just discovered that earlier this month Lilian Jackson Braun Bettinger passed away at the age of 97. Read the New York Times article. In honor of her passing I am reviewing my favorite of her Cat Who novels.

It is not the first in the fun series, but reading these books in order is not required for understanding. A lighthearted murder mystery that seems to step back into time or another, gentler world. Join Qwilleran and his cat's, Koko and YumYum, as their vacation goes awry and a saboteur(?) runs amok. If you like mysteries, cats, and witty informative writing this is a book for you.
