From the imaginative mind of award winning author Chris Grabenstein comes a very funny, very touching new comedy filled with laughter, learning, and heart that's ideal for groups of all ages. Curiosity Cat is the play-within-the-book from Grabenstein's award-winning novel for middle grades readers The Hanging Hill. It's a story about displaced children and homeless cats as well as family and the value of curiosity.
When their mother becomes very ill Claire and Charleigh are forced to live with their father's Aunt Jenny. A stray cat named Curiosity also wanders into the house. When she breaks Claire's prized music box, she immediately throws her back out into the streets. Being homeless is an adventure, not a concern, for a cat this curious and cool.
Soon, the children (with Fran the dog) set out to rescue Curiosity Cat who is busily trying to help other forlorn felines find homes while simultaneously avoiding a newly appointed "cat catcher" who vows to put her to sleep!
Filled with memorable characters—such as Coot, the geriatric cat; Slicker the big city alley cat; Penelope, the pampered Persian Princess; Fran the extremely loyal dog; a nervous and nutty squirrel; a chorus of cute jailbird strays; and the evil cat catcher Skeevelberger—the play builds to a funny and touching climax that will leave audiences laughing and cheering!

Four couples arrive at the townhouse of a deputy New York City mayor and his wife to attend a party celebrating their tenth wedding anniversary. However, the four couples soon discover that there are no servants, the hostess is missing and the deputy mayor has shot himself in the head (it's only a flesh wound).
