Curiosity didn't kill the cat, but it did drive Caroline Paul more than a little bonkers. Animal lovers, especially those devoted to their kitties, will blaze through Lost Cat with lots of laughs and perhaps a tear or two. (Warning: A dear pet dies, but not the title feline. That chapter is touching but emotional.)

When Tibby returns home after a 5-week leave of absence, Caroline and her partner Wendy use all manner of detective methods to ascertain where and why he might have gone. A combination of illustrations and GPS maps really add to the already humorous writing. I thought the beginning was a bit stronger than the finish, but overall I enjoyed the book immensely. I had a great time sharing bits with anyone nearby willing to listen!

Get a quick taste of the book by visiting the website www.lostcatbook.com where you can find some of the artwork, learn tips about how to track your cat, and submit your own "lost cat" story for lostcatbook on Tumblr.
