It is also a mystery whether this should be considered a proper cookbook. Feline Sneaky Pie, owned by human author Rita Mae Brown, narrates the 25 recipes that are divided fairly evenly between menus for humans and those for edibles for four-legged creatures (those animals include rabbits, horses, and dogs, as well as cats). Some dishes are serious and straightforward, such as Mom's fried chicken. Other recipes mirror Sneaky's humor; note the instructions for the dog's dinner: "Take the leftovers from these recipes, toss all of them in a dish, and feed. [Hee hee]." The fun is not so much in the cooking as in the accompanying prose; after all, it's not every day that we learn one of Rita Mae's most cherished beliefs--"cocktail parties are an excellent way to weaken men." For the Sneaky Pies in all of us. Barbara Jacobs

They have collaborated on seven Mrs. Murphy mysteries: Wish You Were Here; Rest in Pieces; Murder at Monticello; Pay Dirt; Murder, She Meowed; Murder on the Prowl; and Cat on the Scent.See all Product Description

Since this "cookbook" claims to follow the 7th volume in the Murphy "lexicon" perhaps it is at best premature. Rita should have waited until after she had 15 or 20 Murphy mysteries under her belt before providing her fans with such nonsense. And exactly who does Rita think she is kidding by having the book printed in hard to read blue ink?

I hate to cook. That said, I loved making the recipes in this book not only for myself but for the critters whom I serve as household help. Read morePublished on March 26 2004 by S. E. Fanning
Brown has got to be kidding on this one. Who in their right mind is going to take this seriously?Published on Aug. 19 2002 by Erin Nesbitt
I was terribly disappointed at the content or lack there of in this cookbook. It really should not call itself a cookbook. Read morePublished on Dec 10 2000
