I normally love the cat who books and I loved this one right up until the end. The ending did not bring much closure to the book and I felt unsatisfied with the finish.
In The Cat Who Went Bananas, wealthy journalist Jim Qwilleran searches for palatable ways to incorporate the bananas his doctor recommends into his diet, while his clever cats, Koko and Yum Yum, prove more than willing to make the evidence of those bananas (and other things) appear at opportune moments. Meanwhile, excitement is running high as Qwill and the folks of Pickax City get ready for opening night of the Theatre Club's latest performance (with an exciting new resident in the leading role), get set to unveil the statue in the town's new park, explore the pros and cons of the new local fad of rose watching, and prepare for the grand opening of the town's new bookstore, The Pirate's Chest. As always, Koko is quick to voice an opinion when an unexpected death and a mysterious theft slip into the story. Then it's up to Qwill to interpret his feline companion's literary clues in time to bring things to a dramatic conclusionwithout slipping up.
from amazon... This 27th entry in the CAT WHO....series finds Qwill and the rest of Moose County waiting for the opening night of local theater group's production of THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST. Since this is Moose County the production soon loses a cast member under questionable circumstances. Qwill and Koko begin inquiries into this and other matters although Qwill at least is distracted by other more personal matters. His longtime girlfriend Polly is finally opening her bookstore and has little time for Qwill any longer. Soon though a valuable book disappears from the store, a new copyboy at the local paper may not be quite what, or who he seems and....well the usual Moose County happenings. Qwill and Koko manage to sort out most of the mysteries and life in Moose County continues.
What can I say? Typical cat book, does leave a few unaswered questions this time....maybe she is saving those for the next book?? I love Qwill.
One of the later books in the series. Not as good as the early ones but still a good distracting read.
