3 of 5 stars to The Cat Who Sniffed Glue, the 8th entry in the “Cat Who” cozy mystery series written in 1988 by Lilian Jackson Braun. Moose County is certainly a memorable town. It’s full of insanely eccentric characters who bring a bunch of laughs, whether it’s over their appearance, action or words. And while Pickax, the town where Qwill, Koko and YumYum live has been the focus for the last couple of books, we’re introduced to Chipmunk, the next town over, in this installment. And Chipmunk must be the bad side of town, as they have all the hoodlums who cause crime. How could a town called Chipmunk be so bad? I must put this place on my bucket list; sounds fun… but on a lighter note, this one made me think of The Cat Who Played Post Office, simply due to the postage stamp adhesive and now the glue Koko and YumYum become obsessed with… focuses on the crazy hijinks at a bank, a robbery possibly turned murder, and Qwill’s decoration of his new pad… and a few added laughs when the woman gives Polly a run for her money in trying to capture Qwill’s heart. I love when there’s Polly competition because she and Qwill can be super boring — sometimes. Not always… and it’s nice how it’s only a little tease, believable, but never a real threat.
