Cleo and I just finished

The Cat Who Turned on and Off by Lilian Jackson Braun

The Cat Who…is a story of a reporter nicknamed Qwill

who discovers some odd behaviors in Junktown

and of course, a mystery ensues!

This was our first foray into reading Braun’s work.

I found it delightfully easy to read, the characters amiable and

who doesn’t love to be taken back in time to a more genteel era of the 60s?

Cleo especially liked that everything about the book involved CATS.

Cats in the title:

Cats as the main characters: KoKo and YumYum

and cat prints on the cover:

What’s not to love?

Cleo and I gave it 3 paws.

What an Animal
