    "I did not like this solution because of 'Cat Who...' series. The title, or at least beginning of is should have been separated otherwise the sentence becomes a run-on. It also does not give the name of the book in full."

    "What a fun and cute story. A friend of mine had challenged me, saying that literature could not feature cats as prominently as the Internet does. While this doesn't quite make my case -- it isn't literature in the same sense as something like The Great Gatsby or Roots -- it was really fun nonetheless."

    "There are apparently a number of books in this series that concern Leger, a cat detective. It looks like the author puts them out fairly rapidly, but that they are actually pretty good, for what they are – small, cute, somewhat unambitious stories. I don't think it is probably one of the best books to ever feature a feline character, but it accomplishes what it sets out to do and is better than one might think, objectively speaking. "
