James, Fabulous Feline: Further Adventures of a Connoisseur Cat

Harriet Hahn, Author St. Martin's Press $14.95 (199p) ISBN 978-0-312-09316-7
The silver-gray, aristocratic feline with extraordinary abilities proves his mettle again in this lighthearted follow-up to James, the Connoisseur Cat . Versatile James detects philatelic forgeries at Thwaites, the London auction house where he works. He also coaches a croquet team, supervises rehearsals of a sequel to the musical Cats , helps deliver a baby and tracks down precious statuettes in Argentina. Hahn's clipped, clean, no-nonsense prose invites readers to suspend disbelief while James struts his stuff as a film actor, sleuth, psychiatrist, set designer, minister at a wedding and star witness in a criminal trial at the Old Bailey. Although the human characters are two-dimensional props in an amusing feline extravaganza, cat-lovers will enjoy the antics of this likable, albeit snobbish adventurer. (June)
