The Cat Who Went Bananas
Autumn has arrived, and the citizens of Pickax find themselves amid a clamor of activity. In addition to the opening of its latest theatrical production, the town is celebrating the dedication of a new bookstore and park built-in memory of Pickax’s beloved bookshop owner Ed Smith, Columnist Jim Owilleran, while participating in the festivities, is also busy with his latest book project: an account of a uniquely historic guest residence, the Hibbard House.
The merry atmosphere, however, is dampened by the suspicious death of an out-of-town actor and the mysterious theft of a rare book. Owill’s research into the Hibbard House provides unexpected insight into these strange proceedings.

Has Koko gone bananas, or will his unusual behavior help Owill unravel this mystery?
With her twenty-seventh Cat Who book, Lilian Jackson Braun proves yet again that Owill, Yum Yum, and Koko are the PURRfect team to solve any mystery.
