Finally, a candidate representing all Americans--both predator and prey!
Tired of politics as usual? Despair not: This election year, Rita Mae Brown has thrown her cat into the ring. Her intrepid feline co-author, Sneaky Pie Brown, is taking time off from her busy schedule writing bestselling mysteries to run for President of the United States.
Hail to the Chief: Sneaky Pie heads to the Oval Office with an animal-friendly agenda to unify all Americans--regardless of whether they walk on two or four feet or even if they fly.
With help from her friends--the irascible gray cat Pewter, the wise Corgi Tee Tucker, and Tally, the exuberant Jack Russell--Sneaky crisscrosses her home state of Virginia hoping to go where no cat since Socks Clinton has gone: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In the tradition of her heroine, Sojourner Truth, she takes her case to the masses. Journeying from the lair of the red-shouldered hawk to the nest of the tufted titmouse, from a pasture full of curmudgeonly cows to the stately halls of Monticello, the tenacious tiger cat even secures the chattering support of Thomas Jefferson's mice.
Mice backing a cat for president? Yes, we can!
Now, if Sneaky can get the animal community to band together for the common good, why not the humans? After all, who better to get the economy purring again than an honest tabby with authentic political stripes? Human candidates have had their chance in Washington, with dubious results of late: nowhere does it say in the Constitution that the president cannot be a cat.
Isn't it time for real change? Vote Sneaky!

Too didactic for my taste, and pretty silly.

Way too silly for me. Couldn't get past page two.

Just not worth reading unless you want to hear all about Brown's political smug ideas. I enjoy her mysteries but not this.

A book for loyal fans of Sneaky Pie and Rita Mae Brown. A cute concept if you can tolerate all the opinions expressed on current local and national politics and policies. No mystery story this time out.
