KIRKUS REVIEW

 Newsman Jim Qwilleran and his Siamese sidekicks, Koko and Yum Yum, now find themselves summering on the top of Big Potatoe Mountain in the ramshackle digs of the late J.J. Hawkinfield, while Qwill mulls over life now that he's officially the beneficiary of the Klingenschoen fortune. Koko, of course, is fascinated by the porch railing old J.J. was pitched over by mountain man Forest Beechum, as well as by a certain wall hanging and something under a massive chest of drawers. And the more Koko meows, the more Qwill is convinced that J.J.'s death has been attributed to the wrong person, which puts him right in the middle of a mountain- development feud between the ``Taters'' and the ``Spuds,'' the have-nots and the haves of the Potatoe range. Meanwhile, there's J.J.'s scurrilous editorials to pore over, including the last he wrote concerning the nefarious Hot Potatoe Fund. Who's behind it? Koko knows and, as usual, lets Qwill in on it while a stressed-out Yum Yum bites her flanks until the three pack up and head back for Pickax City. A shade cuter than most Braun outings, with a very incidental murder, but devoted fans will lap it up anyway.
