This 27th book in The Cat Who series is as new and refreshing as the first and all of those in between. In this offering, Pickaxe comes alive once again. A new bookstore is set to brighten the town, and opening night of the play The Importance of Being Earnest is anxiously awaited.

As usual, Siamese Koko senses dire times in the offing and Jim Quilleran's mustache quivers slightly, a sure sign something will go wrong. Quill, newspaper reporter and founder of the K Fund, gives house space to two very perspicacious Siamese who allow him to care for them. Together, they solve numerous crimes that plague the town of Pickaxe, '400 miles north of everywhere'. This time, a rare book is stolen and an out-of-town actor dies under suspicious circumstances. Quill, in his inimitable manner, works his way to a satisfactory conclusion.

For a few hours of pure delight and an escape from the everyday world, The Cat Who Went Bananas is the very ticket to tickle your funny bone as you become immersed in Pickaxe and its doings.
