Lilian Jackson Braun readers have been eagerly anticipating James Mackintosh Qwilleran's collection of tales ever since the protagonist of the bestselling The Cat Who… series announced (in 1997's The Cat Who Tailed a Thief) that he planned to write a book showcasing the many strange and wonderful legends of Moose County.
We've seen samples of these tales throughout the series, and now the fruits of "Qwill's" efforts have been collected in a charming volume. These 27 eclectic stories -- recounting strange happenings, mysterious occurrences, good works, chicanery, ghostly visitations, crooks, and heroes -- share some classic anecdotes (each introduced by Qwilleran and told with varying degrees of embellishment) from Moose County history. Readers may miss tales of Qwill's own feline companions, Koko and Yum Yum (understandably absent from this volume since, like Qwill, the cats are not natives of Moose County), but all cat lovers may rest assured that Qwill has not failed to pay tribute to the role of cats in local history.
We asked Lilian Jackson Braun to talk about her The Cat Who… mysteries, James Qwilleran's perspective on Moose County history, and this delightful collection of Short and Tall Tales. Find out what she had to say in our exclusive author essay.
