the cat who saw red
One of my favorite series of books is “The Cat Who…” series by Lilian Jackson Braun. They are light mysteries about a man named Qwilleran and his two Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum. Koko is a highly intelligent cat and helps Qwill solve the mysteries. They’re entertaining and the author has a lovely way of writing that will appeal to any cat lover.
When I lived in Peru, I had the whole series at one point. Unfortunately I had to leave them all behind. :-( But I was an avid reader. In fact, when I got two Siamese kittens, I named them Koko and Yum Yum. :-)
Paul and I are reading “The Cat Who Saw Red”, which is the fourth book in the series. We read a chapter a night over the phone :-p mostly because I want Paul to experience the books I loved (still love? i don’t know; it’s been a while since I’ve read them).
Anyways, I recommend these books if you don’t want anything too deep, and especially if you are a cat lover. :-)
