This is a quick and fun read. Done in a journal format, it has tidbits about Koko and Yum Yum. How each cat came to live with Quilleran. Their quirks and habits. How they have helped solve some of the mysteries.

If you enjoy these two feline detectives and their adventures, then these glimpses into their histories is right up your alley. ( )

It's really generous to call this mish-mash of fluff a 'book'. Anyone who has read most of the other books in the series knows that this material has been lifted almost verbatim from the previous books. No new material at all.

Really not worth reading. ( )

Mildly amusing for an afternoon when you find yourself stuck in the blood bank waiting to give blood. ( )

Picked this book up from the library in order to finish a task on my 101 list. It was a super quick read about two Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, who live with the writer James Mackintosh Qwilleran. The story starts off by explaining the strange circumstances by which Koko entered James's life and his search for a playmate for Koko, leading to Yum Yum. The short chapters that then follow re-tell different adventures the trio find themselves in and ponders on the rather strange but loveable behaviour that the cats (and cats in general) display.

This book was quite sweet and funny, although may not be as funny for a non-cat lover. :] ( )
