With an introduction by Lilian Jackson Braun, this delightful volume that reveals the offbeat “history” of Moose County is a treat for old and new fans alike.

“Fans of Lilian Jackson Braun’s The Cat Who... series won’t want to miss Short and Tall Tales. In the voice of Qwill, her beloved fictional journalist, Braun presents twenty-seven amusing yarns.”—Publishers Weekly
