Giveaway ~ Another book

This month's used book giveaway is The Cat Who Went Bananas, by Lilian Jackson Braun.  This is a used paperback that I purchased at the all-island garage sale days last fall.

Simply be the first to post that you want it, and it's yours.

Fun Trivia I learned from this book:

Mulligatwany is a soup, and it is mentioned in a Dr. Suess book.

Skuunk water is basically a local mineral water found in Moose County.

Indefatigable means:  "persisting tirelessly"

Ailurphobe means:  "a person who hates or fears cats"

*definitions are from on-line dictionaries
