For Tori Trotter, Cat of Mystery, some cases start rough, some cases start eay. This one starts with a visit to Muffy, the illustrious Maine Coone cat who lives in luxury at the Grismarke Inn, eating lobster for lunch and caviar for dinner. A scruffy, one-eyed cat has been stalking Muffy, so she hires Tori to get at the truth--a truth that will rock Muffy's complacent world far more than she could have imagined.

Hi, Barbara, Oh, what a delightful read the Tiberian Tiger is! I had a chance to spend time with it/you in the last couple of days and just delighted in the ways that you added humor to your story, Barbara... Merritt Parkway and all! Thanks so much for sharing the book with me. Margie Ingram Director of Special Programs The HUMOR Project, Inc, Saratoga Springs, NY. --Private Individual
My students and I finished your book, It is fabulous and really opened up discussions for vocabulary and character development. We loved finding out about the CIA! I will send you the students comments once they are edited. Best always, will be in touch soon. Lisa Daur, Teacher, ALP (Gifted) Program, North Street School, Greenwich, CT. --Teacher, Greenwich, CT
We loved reading Tori Trotter. First of all your book had so much humor. Patrick loved how Scout always ate before Tori would show up. Anna thought Zoe's seriousness about the password was hysterical. Claudia found humor in the beginning when Tori said she liked "Red Herring", "I'm a detective, I am also a cat." Secondly, the twist at the end made your story so thrilling. Tiberius is Muffy's brother, wow! And last but not least, we loved the way you developed your characters. Tori's dry sense of humor and professional ways really made him a good cat detective. Scout seemed to be like a young kid always running for food, trying to catch a butterfly, and always getting into mischief. Misty, the internet cat, curious and informative. It was so wonderful how you took cats that you know and put them into your story with such different personality. The Mystery of Tori Trotter is funny, exciting, and the characters are so enjoyable. Thank you for sharing your writing with us and we can't wait to read your next book. Keep in touch with North Street School and us. --2nd grade students, Greenwich, CT
