A Very Cute "Cat Who" book, although not a mystery like usual. This is a "collection of stories 'collected' by main character Jim Qwilleran from his Moose County Home. A must for the collector!

Not as good as the 'cat who' but kind of cute if you've read alot of Brauns' books.

We have been traveling with Qwill as he collects his Moose County Legends. It is very appropriate that this is a recording because Qwill always carries his recorder with him and records these stories. Here is a chance for you to hear some of the stories.

This is a cute telling of lots of antidoctal stories, but it's not about cats. That's what I've come to expect from Lilian Jackson Braun. It's still fun.

Good news for fans of the bestselling Cat Who mysteries: Fictional columnist James Qwilleran has finally completed his book showcasing the stories related to him by residents of Moose County, that famous region four hundred miles north of everywhere. As devoted readers of the series know, Qwill has been working on this book since The Cat Who Tailed a Thief. Now he has compiled all the stories in Short & Tall Tales.

Lilian Jackson Braun introduces readers to James Mackintosh Qwilleran and recounts how he collected the stories. Qwill provides a preface for each, describing the teller and the circumstances. And the tales themselves entertain, and reveal the offbeat "history" of Moose County. Here is a treat for old and new fans alike.

If you have read the Cat Who books (as I have), then you have already read these stories because they were all included in several of those books. If haven't read them all, then its nice to have them all organized in one little book. They are cute but very short - only a few pages each. I actually enjoyed reading them within the context of the several Cat Who books she included them in because for each one, Qwill was usually interviewing the person who told the story and it was usually family legends.
